2019-2020 Board



President: Haley Green

My name is Haley Green, and I am this year’s BASSA President! I am a third-year student, minoring in Ecology and Marketing, and this is my second year on BASSA.  I am from Toronto, but at Guelph I really feel at home! On campus, I am most likely to be spotted getting lunch at the Bullring (the tofu wrap is the best thing ever!) or studying on the 3rd floor of the library.  When I am not busy with school work, my favorite pastimes are cooking and exploring new parts of Guelph.  If you see me on campus feel free to come and say hello! Additionally feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions or just want to chat 🙂 hgreen01@uoguelph.ca 



Vice President of Finance and Administrations: Christina Rose

Hi everyone! My name is Christina and I’m your VP of Finance and Administration. I was also in this position last year, so I’m very excited to learn from my experiences and make improvements. I am a 4th-year student with specializations in Psychology: Brain and Cognition and Marketing.  My hometown is just outside of Waterloo (ever heard of Heidelberg?), but I was originally born in England.  You can usually find me drowning myself in tea at the library, or hanging out at home, surrounded by candles. I am also on the C2C Conference planning committee (look out for updates!).  I have loved my time so far at Guelph, and being in the BAS program has been a huge part of that. If you have any questions about the program or just want to chat, feel free to reach out: crose07@uoguelph.ca. Looking forward to another great year ASCI friends!

Bio Coming Soon!


Vice President of Activities and Events: Zara Chughtai

Hey guys, I’m Zara! I am your Second Year Rep and College of Biological Sciences representative. Currently, I’m specializing in bio and psych, hoping to one day become a therapist or something in the realm. In my free time, I enjoy reading cheesy YA novels, binging Netflix, and playing with my dog (his name is Murphy!) or my roommate’s cats. I’m really excited for you guys to enjoy the events we have planned for you, don’t be shy to come out. If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask and I hope everyone to has a great year!



Vice President of Communications: Sarah Rafie

Hello future/ fellow ASCI students! My name is Sarah Rafie (you can call me Rafie), and I’m the VP of activities for the 2018-2019 year. I am currently going into my third year at UoG for BAS. I never thought that I would choose this program for university (I was set on bio-medicine or health science in grade 12) and I stumbled upon this versatile program at Guelph, and here I am. I am minoring in Neuroscience and Political Science and it’s an amazing mix (feel free to shoot me a message if you’re ever stressed about choosing your minors). I hail from Toronto, Ontario, and am currently involved in Pre-med club, HOSA, USCC, Water for Humanity, Orientation Team (I’ve been a Team Leader two years in a row!) and of course, BASSA. I love being active, and I partake in kickboxing, soccer, volleyball, and swimming. I have a cute little Bichon Frise who resembles a cotton ball and her name is Kyo, inspired by my favourite anime “Fruits Basket.” I’m super involved in extracurriculars, love reading, napping, playing piano, and hanging out with my friends . I’m super friendly and outgoing so if you ever see me wandering around campus, be sure to stop and say hey 🙂 (I may also be sleepwalking because I never seem to get enough sleep….) Anyways, I look forward to meeting all of you, and I hope you join BASSA! Cheers!

Second Year Representative: Lily White 

Hey guys! I’m Lily, and I’m so excited to be your first year representative this year.  I’m planning on my specializations to be Neuroscience and Sociology, but my science one might change – I can’t choose! 🙂 Some randoms facts about me are that I’m a Leo baby, I love to sing, and I try to travel as much as I possibly can.  I love dogs (especially Corgis) but I’ve actually never owned a pet other than a fish!  I love to be involved in my community, and try to take advantage of leadership roles whenever I can.  If you ever see me around, come say hi, cause I love meeting new people!  If you ever need to contact me about anything, my email is lwhite08@uoguelph.ca.  I look forward to meeting all of you this year!
