Students, faculty and staff in the Trent University Environmental and Life Sciences (ELS) Graduate Program are celebrating the successful launch of their new Wild Thing lip dub video on Thursday, December 6, 2012, in Bagnani Hall, Traill College.

"This lip dub video captures the essence of our graduate program, emphasizing the amazing research we do in the field and in the laboratory. We also wanted to convey the enthusiasm that Trent faculty, staff, and students have for learning and that we can also have fun," Dr. Craig Brunetti, director of the ELS Graduate Program said.

The video has already been viewed more than 11,500 times on YouTube.

For every hit on YouTube that the video receives, 0.1 cent will be donated to a scholarship to help a future ELS grad student, thanks to support from Trent University Alumni, Advancement, Dr. Chris Metcalfe, the Graduate Student Association, Havelock Truck and Auto, and many more.
