Creating Friendly, Inclusive Neighbourhoods in our Campus Communities


Peterborough, ON (Sep. 12, 2023) – Fleming College is helping ensure new and returning students get to know their neighbours through the Great Neighbourhood Walk.

The Great Neighbourhood Walk is a student-led initiative which connects students to residents in our campus communities.
Through a partnership between the Fleming College Student Administrative Council, the Frost Student Association, the Peterborough Police Service, the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service and representatives from local municipalities, this initiative gives students knowledge and resources to have a successful off-campus housing experience.

Teams consisting of police officers, municipal representatives and students will be walking through residential areas around the Sutherland and Frost campuses, handing out swag and information to new residents. This information includes garbage and recycling pickup schedules, public transit routes, city maps and tips on how students can be great neighbours and help create a warm, inclusive environment in their community.

The Great Neighbourhood Walk returns to the Sutherland Campus Sept. 12 at 4:30 p.m.

Media wishing to attend either walk can contact Communications Officer Sarah Deeth at sarah.deeth@flemingcollege.ca.
