It’s that time again… the annual TRU Spring Break Experience is back! This casual and informative event helps any prospective post-secondary student find the resources and strategies they need to be successful and get the most out of their post-secondary experience.
If you or someone you know is considering TRU then this event is for you. It’s never too early or too late to learn what university is all about—high school students in any grade, family, friends, and the general public are encouraged to come. The Welcome Centre has negotiated discounted accommodation for out of town guests. Visit the accommodation page for more information on rates and participating hotels.
Visit for the whole day or stay for a few hours. There is no pre-registration required (except for class shadowing), simply show up for what interests you.
This year’s event is slated for March 18-22nd. There is a great variety of daily activities designed to show off the TRU campus and to encourage prospective students to learn about valuable opportunities that will enhance their TRU experience.
