“My program placement introduced me to a stimulating and professional setting that wasn’t extremely intense, so it offered a good stepping stone between university and the professional world. I learned a lot, made network connections, and the information I learned both in my program and at my placement will be very broadly applicable in whatever career direction I choose to go.”

Andrew Stranaghan, a fourth-year Business student specializing in marketing, recently finished a placement as part of his internship with Peterborough County in the Facilities department. Mr. Stranaghan chose to incorporate hands-on, experiential learning as a large component of his degree through his placement, helping him to make strong connections between his academic learning and the professional world.

Trent University prides itself on providing an outstanding personal and interactive learning environment. This story is part of the #FacesofTrentU series, which highlights our many student success stories and the numerous dynamic programs offered at Trent.
