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 in 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 favourite pastimes are exploring new parts of Guelph or discovering new music.  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 have been in this position for the last two years and I’m excited to be back again. I am a 5th 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. I’m a commuter student this year, but when I am on campus you can find me in the BAS lounge or on the sixth floor of the library. 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 everyone! 



Vice President of Academics: Katie Kang

My name is Katie, and I’m this year’s VP of academics! I’m a second-year student

minoring in biochem and psychology, and this is my first year on BASSA. If I’m not at
home or on campus studying, I’m most likely hanging out with my friends, exploring the
lovely downtown of Guelph, or watching YouTube videos with my roomie. I’m super
excited to be a part of BASSA this year. If you ever see me on campus, feel free to say hi
and ask me any questions you may have about the program. Have a good year everyone,
wish you the best of luck!

Vice President of Activities and Events: Zara Chughtai

My name is Zara and I am your VP of activities this year. Currently, I am in my third year
specializing in biology and psychology, hoping to eventually go into genetic counselling.
When I’m not stressing over assignments in the library, I like to go on hikes, visit cute
cafes and if I’m feeling extra boujee I love to travel 💕 A personal goal is to visit Australia
one day. As for this year, I am excited for you guys to see all the cool events we have
planned for you !



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 2019-2020 year. I am currently going into my fourth  year at UoG for BAS. 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, USCC, Water for Humanity, Orientation Team (I’m a Team Leader this year!), HOSA, 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!

Hey guys! I’m Lily, and I’m so excited to be your second-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!
