British Appreciation Society (BAS)

bac_logo_colorThe seeds of the BAS were sown when Alice Rozwadowski met Henry Wardley, two Brits in a North American world. They decided to form a British Society at McGill, a society that would include fellow Brits who missed the comforting accent of home in a land of “zucchini” and “eggplant” (courgette and aubergine people!) as well as those who were simply interested in British culture and wanted to know more. Along the way they recruited the remaining execs and in the autumn of 2010, the BAS began in earnest. Famous now in McGill for its quiz nights, events and inclusive nature.
