Trent University Announces Lady Eaton College at Black Honey


Coffee house on Hunter Street to provide downtown space for off-campus students

A dynamic downtown space for students of Trent University’s Lady Eaton College (LEC) is celebrating its opening at Black Honey Coffee House from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19 to benefit LEC students who live off-campus.

LEC students will be able to meet regularly with the principal, faculty and members of the student government, or just casually drop in to relax with friends. A special discount card is being offered to all current students of Lady Eaton College. The space also offers members of the community an opportunity to find out more about Lady Eaton College and Trent University.

“We are hoping that this initiative will strengthen the student relationship with the college and reaffirm Peterborough’s traditional ties to Trent University,” said Dr. Michael Eamon, principal of Lady Eaton College.

“Our philosophy at Black Honey is nourish your body and soul … chill and be safe! My staff and I are looking forward to meeting Lady Eaton staff and students,” said Lisa Dixon, who started Black Honey in October 2005. Black Honey has gained a reputation in Peterborough as an ethical and community-minded business for serving only 100% fair trade coffees and teas with a focus on locally produced items.

Lady Eaton College was founded in 1968 and is one of Trent University’s five colleges.  collegiate universities, like Trent, are rare in North America. Each college offers students a smaller community of fellow students, teachers and academic advisors within the larger educational setting.
