ABOUT US

Sasquatch University was founded by the executive members of the Trent University Sasquatch Society.

"Our goal is to educate the public about Sasquatch/Bigfoot and to spread discussion about Sasquatch in the academic setting. It is a very under-researched field, considering the amount of sightings and evidence. We want to inspire University students to create their own organizations. Sasquatch University is a place where University clubs can come to get more information on Sasquatch and connect with us to contact guest speakers".

"The society, now about a year old, is devoted to searching for signs of the mythic beast. Sasquatch, also known as Bigfoot, has long been mentioned in Indigenous oral history. It's often depicted as a giant, hairy apelike mammal, walking upright in forests primarily in the Pacific Northwest, but discounted by scientists.

Society members go out on explorations, trudging through the woods to follow up on tips they get. There's a learning component too, meeting online for weekly Q&As with sasquatch researchers and enthusiasts like the cast of Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot series"... Read the full article!

"Sasquatch Society?

Sounds like a good name for a college beer-pong team.

The Trent University Sasquatch Society, however, is a scientific group that takes the search for Bigfoot very seriously.

“Are we just kids drinking in the woods? We get that a lot,” says Sasquatch Society founder and President, Ryan Willis.

“But we do a lot of research.”

Willis put the organization together when he was a first-year student. The Trent University Sasquatch Society became an official club at the school last fall, as Willis’ fourth year began.

It’s a hugely popular club with about 150 members.

 

“All our meetings are very serious,” Willis said in a recent interview.

 

“Our goals are to research and to look, but Peterborough’s not the best place to be looking. Our focus is to educate. We bring in experts each weekend”... Read the full article!

Sasquatch. Yeti. Bigfoot.

The elusive beast, shrouded in mystery and dismissed with skepticism, takes on many names — and just as many divisive viewpoints.

Does the anti-social creature really exist, hiding away in dense woodlands away from humans’ prying eyes, or is it simply a years-old make-believe animal borne out of folklore?

For Ryan Willis, a fourth-year cultural studies student at Trent University, the Sasquatch is very much real — and he’s setting out to prove it.

Willis is the president and founder of the Trent University Sasquatch Society, a group of 136 Trent students and Bigfoot enthusiasts bent on tracking down the yeti once and for all"... Read the full article!

"It goes by many names: yeti, sasquatch and, of course, Bigfoot. While some believe it’s a mythical beast reserved for storybooks and the silver screen, other think the primate-like species is the real deal.
