Being Trent University’s oldest college, Traill has almost six decades of traditions that make up its collegiate tapestry. For example:
Every October, new matriculating students are provided a College scarf in an annual Scarf Ceremony that brings together current students, fellows, and alumni of the College
Traill College boasts the second-longest alumni event in the university. For over 40 years, the Team Trend hockey tournament has brought together Traill alumni.
The Traill College Carnival is held every year at the end of Orientation. Students and the community get to enjoy live music, games, and food!
Traill College Dinners happen two or three times a year and give the Traill community a unique place for food, fellowship, and fun. Everyone sits at long tables, and it is a great way to meet new people. There is always live music, great food, and dinner is always followed by a round of energetic toasts. Participants are encouraged to be as formal as they want to be. Whether you are wearing a T-shirt or a Tuxedo, you are welcome at a Traill College Dinner.
Every week all summer long, join Traill College for all you can eat pizza, drinks, and dessert at Pizza Fridays!

The founding father of Trent University, Thomas Symons had a never-ending passion for research. The Symons Seminar Series for Graduate Research, one of the longest running student-led seminar series in North America, brings to life the joys and passions of Tom Symons. Each seminar features two students (one from the Arts and one from the Sciences) who present their research and help bridge the gap between the Arts and Sciences.
