As a way to start this academic year, the members of WUSC at Trent University held a General Meeting in the Morton Reading Room at Champlain college on Monday, September 26 2011.

The Meeting had a casual tone, where a group interested students were able to meet the current executive members of WUSC at Trent University as well as two sponsored students of Trent University.

Our goal is to create awareness on campus of WUSC and to engage students to participate and volunteer in our campaigns and events.During the meeting we gladly introduced the attendants to our mission as a WUSC group on campus, we discussed our reasons for pursuing an active role as executive members, and we encouraged the attendants to volunteer.

We informed the attendants and now we inform you, dear reader, that we will pursue two major campaigns for the year and in a smaller scale the committee will also host small activities for awareness and fundraising.

We will pursue Her Challenge Your Challenge, a campaign which aims to recognize and echo challenges faced by women around the world and Canada.We will be combining it with Shine A Light, a campaign that aims to help girls in refugee camps studying and excel as the ratio of girls to boys in school is 1:4.
Buy Into Change: Ethical Purchasing is the second campaign that we will be pursuing this year, it aims to make fair trade a global practice through ethical purchasing at the local level.

We would like to extend our appreciation to the students who attended the meeting and we hope to see you in our next one or volunteering in our events!

WUSC at Trent University would like to invite you to it’s annual Ice-cream Day to be held on Thursday, 3rd April, between 1:00pm and 3:00pm on the podium in front of the Bata library.

Come and enjoy some FREE ice-cream and light music as the Winter 2008 university semester comes to an end. If you have a cup or a mug, please feel free to bring it along with you.

Thanks to the local Baskin Robins for donating the ice cream being distributed at this event.

Join the Trent chapter of WUSC this Friday, March 14th, at 4:00pm in GCS114 as we celebrate World Water Day with a FREE film and presentation on access to clean water and sanitation.

We will hear about water issues worldwide and in the specific context of Peru, where the World University Service of Canada has recently completed a multi-year project to help provide better sanitation and water services for more than 1 million people.

There will also be information about how you can get involved with WUSC at Trent and all around the world.
