Toronto Alumni Social

Toronto Alumni SocialSome recurring, yet constructive feedback we received over the course of the 25th anniversary weekend was that many of our alumni would appreciate more opportunities to reconnect with former Castle classmates in their home communities. Well, we were listening!

On December 12, BISC Executive Director and Vice-Provost Hugh Horton hosted a casual gathering at the Flatiron Pub in Toronto. It was a festive opportunity to celebrate the close of the Bader International Study Centre’s landmark 25th year, and for ‘Castle Kids’ in Toronto to reconnect and swap stories.

Toronto Alumni Social 2More than thirty guests were in attendance, with representation from a wide variety of BISC cohorts – from 1999 right up to 2019 itself. There was a wonderful energy and palpable excitement in the room, with folks making new connections and discovering they lived and worked a stone’s-throw from fellow Torontonians with the Castle in common.

The advertised 7pm close came and went, with many staying long into the evening to celebrate all-things BISC!
