First-year students receive warm, enthusiastic welcome!


Monday, September 05, 2005, Peterborough

Arriving in vans and cars bursting with stereos, computer systems – even stuffed animals, students entering their first year at Trent University are being greeted with a warm and noisy welcome today.

Student reps from the various residential colleges at Trent are set up at entrance ways to the University to welcome "first-years" as they cross the threshold into University life. Whistles, dancing, music, cheers and colourful signs are all a part of the scene – and just a prelude to five days chock full of events that make up Introductory Seminar Week at Trent.

This week at Trent University is called Introductory Seminar Week with events from Monday, September 5 through to Friday, September 9. A full week of activities gets students involved in University life.
