New Student Experience Certificate

The New Student Experience Certificate Program is open to all new and transfer students at Trent University Durham.  This certificate is a developmental program designed to provide incoming students an opportunity to strengthen skills in many different areas throughout the sessions to increase academic success.

Each session is interactive in nature and allows students to learn through directed discussion and activities under themes such as: life skills, social development, career exploration, goal setting, and more.  All sessions are both fun and informative.

The sessions will run for 1.5 hours each week.  You must be available to attend all 5 sessions (one per week) in order to obtain the certificate.  Sessions will be facilitated by staff, faculty, and peers. 

All students who complete the certificate will receive co-curricular recognition and will be able to move directly into the Trent Durham Leadership Program upon completion.

We have 2 different times for workshops:
- Wednesday's:  3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
- Thursday's:  11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Registration is open for September 2018.  Click HERE to Register.
