The student association
representing all full-time undergraduate students
at Trent University
in Peterborough Ontario
. Local 71 of the CFS

This organization's first mandate is to represent students' voices both within Trent University and within the Post Secondary Education
System of Ontario and Canada
. Its other mandate is to arrange the Health Plan
as well as Dental
coverage for its members.
The Board is made up of 29 members ranging from Aboriginal
Commissioner to Queer Issues
Commissioner. The board also includes three members from each of the Residential colleges
: the College Cabinet
President, the Senior Senator
, and the College Commissioner. The Executive
is made up of the President and four vice-presidents, who's portfolios are respectively: External Affairs, Fianance/Corperate Secretary, Membership Services, and University Affairs. Elections
are held in late March
as well as mid-September
in order to allow for the first year
positions to be filled.
In 2001-2002 the dues were 21.50 (Can.
$) per student. They are currently indexed to inflation, so one would expect them to be relatively stable short of a member wide referendum
to change them in either direction.
