Future Students Invited to Discover Trent University at March Break Open House

March 13, 2017

Attendees offered free transportation and the chance to enter to win first-year tuition

Exploring campus, chatting with future professors, and getting a real sense of what it’s like to be a student at Trent University – future students will have the opportunity to do all of this and more at the upcoming March Break Open House events, taking place Tuesday, March 14 at Trent University Durham – GTA and Thursday, March 16 in Peterborough.

Prospective students and their friends and family are invited to attend events at both campuses to learn about life at Trent University during Open House, which runs from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on March 14 in Durham and from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on March 16 in Peterborough. These events are open to all high school, mature, and transfer students.

“For the second year in a row, Trent is leading the province for the largest percentage increase in applications, and the number of students who made Trent their first choice is up more than 27%,” said Marilyn Burns, associate vice-president, Marketing & Recruitment. “Touring our stunning campus and chatting with current students and professors is the best way for students to see if Trent is the right fit. We look forward to showing future students all that Trent’s two campuses have to offer.”

Following the success of the bus-to-us program at the fall Open House, Trent University will continue to offer students throughout the GTA, Kingston, Ottawa, and Bellville free pick-up and drop-off to the Peterborough Open House. Students attending Open House at the Durham campus can show their GO Transit receipt and receive a pre-loaded Presto Card reimbursement. All students who attend Open House will also be entered in a draw to win their first-year tuition.

While at the Open House events, attendees will have the opportunity to tour Trent’s campuses, residences and classrooms, attend information sessions about scholarships and student life, experience mini-lectures and speak with professors and students about their program of interest. Students will also have the chance to either apply to Trent on the spot, or accept their offer and celebrate with an official commemorative photo.
