Bring It On!
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN IN MARCH 2020
The Bring it On! Program provides students with a chance to learn and build strategies for academic and social success through participating in a wide variety of interactive and fun activities with other first year students new to Trent! The program takes place in the summer before students begin school in September. The 2020 Bring It On! weekend will be held on August 8-9th for $150 +HST, which includes activities, accommodation, food, and an event shirt!
How does Bring It On! work?
Students spend the weekend in small groups with other first year students, participating in a variety of activities across campus led by upper year students.
Some of the activities include:
- Several workshops designed to make your transition to university an easy one!
- Rock climbing in the Athletics Centre
- Rowing in North America's most advanced indoor combination row tank
- Hanging out by the Otonabee River
- Small group activities facilitated by upper-year students
We ensure our activities are accessible to all new students!
What is Bring It Early?
This extra evening is helpful for students who may live far away from campus and cannot be dropped off on Saturday and also for students who may want a head start on meeting new people and getting accustomed to campus.

This additional fee includes your room for the extra night, dinner and snacks on the Friday evening, additional light programming on the Friday evening and breakfast on Saturday August 8th, 2019.
