Thank you for accepting the Alumni Student Centre Challenge!

$750,000 in matching funds was raised because of your donations

Remember your time at Trent? The enthusiasm, the learning, the creativity? You will be the first to admit it did not all happen in the classroom. It was often the extracurricular activities such as clubs, social events, late-night debates, that you remember most fondly, and that formed the foundation for your life and career.

Trent is one of Canada's highest-ranked small universities and students want future generations to enjoy the unique experience that only a smaller university can offer. Still, the campus was built for 3,000 and there are now over 7,000 students, meaning space for formal and informal gatherings can be tight.

That’s why students asked alumni, through the Alumni Student Centre Challenge, to help build a new Student Centre.

Students are so committed to this project that they are providing, through a special student levy, $10.5 million of the $16 million required. This means each student will contribute $95 a year which includes current and future students. Basically, they have taken on the mortgage for the new 37,000 square foot Student Centre. Quite a commitment!

An anonymous alum is so impressed by the students’ enthusiasm that they put up $750,000 in matching funds to help the students’ challenge to alumni. 

Take the challenge. Make a pledge. And spread the word by challenging five more alumni!
