In the past there were 4 College Weekends held over the course of the school year.
The first is typically a weekend in late September/early October. In the past Cabinet has rented a bus and taken students apple picking at Watson's farms. Other events often include pumpkin carving, movie nights, trivia and bonfires!
The Festive College Weekend is the second of four college weekends. It takes place in late November/early December each year and is packed full of traditions. Lady Eaton College and Cabinet plan events for students to enjoy such as gingerbread house decorating and caroling! To start the weekend off there is often a semiformal dinner, which is a great way to connect with the college community before the end of the first term. In the past there has been a tree decoration ceremony, toasts, and more during the dinner.
The Winter College Weekend is the third of four college weekends planned by Lady Eaton College Cabinet and takes place during the winter semester. The weekend traditionally includes a college dinner and in the past, a day-long broomball tournament which was once called the “Bru-ha-ha.” Cabinet and the College office usually plan several other events that fill up the weekend, but these events vary from year to year.
The Spring College Weekend takes place in March and is the last college weekend of the school year. The weekend is full of traditions and is a great way to celebrate the end of the school year! This weekend typically starts off with a Graduate Reception. All graduating Lady Eaton College students are invited to come in grad gowns to celebrate, socialize, snack on catered food, and watch a special slideshow to commemorate their time at Trent and in the Lady Eaton College community. Immediately after the Grad Reception is the Spring Celebration Dinner. Graduating and non-graduating students alike gather and celebrate college awardees, and the winner of the photo contest is declared. One of Lady Eaton’s AND Trent’s most longstanding traditions also occurs over the weekend. It is a super fun, but secret event. You’ll have to attend to find out more, but just remember... Beware the Toad!
