Experience Bring It On!

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.

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:

  • Rock climbing in the newly renovated Athletics Centre
  • Canoeing on the Otonabee River
  • Hiking up the famous Trent Drumlin
  • Several workshops designed to make your transition to university an easy one!
