Off Campus Student Events
Trent is putting on a number of events geared towards off campus students to help make your orientation experience a positive one. These are all great opportunities to make friends with other off campus students and form a connection with the University and your college. You are strongly encouraged to attend all of these events if possible, but also make an effort to go out to the many other events offered through the week, that are not geared specifically towards off campus students.
