Social Secretaries

Ben Stewart and James Watson

Hey everyone, I’m Ben! James Watson and I are your social secs for this year, so apologies for my group chat spamming in advance, I’m not really a keyboard warrior. We will be organising socials such as club nights, winter ball (possibly a spring or summer ball depending on COVID, stay tuned for updates) and end of phase 1 drinks. We will also be working with society reps to bring to bring you some great events for all of us at BSMS to enjoy!
What is your favourite thing about BSMS?
I feel that because everybody is so close and we all know each other very well, there is a feeling that you are part of a big family here. It of course goes without saying that the social side and societies of BSMS are great too.
What is your best memory of BSMS?
I think my best memory of BSMS from first year has to be Winter Ball. It was great to pretend to be classy and be around your pals for the evening and then at a club after. I was relieved to not win the ‘biggest mess’ award despite my nomination (congratulations Ruhan, well deserved). Also, Leo’s speech for being the ‘most likely to be struck off’ was a moment I will never forget.
Cats or dogs?
Dogs. I like taking James for a walk and letting him off the lead at Stanmer park if he behaves himself.
What is my favourite thing about James?
Well, the list is long, but James does make incredible cocktails which come in handy after a long day of biochem.
If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life what would it be?

Hello! I’m James and I am currently in second year. Myself and Ben Stewart are going to be the social secs this year and it will be the first time either of us have been part of the medsoc. Our main role as social secs is to organise club nights and other events for everyone at BSMS to attend.

What is your favourite thing about BSMS?
My favourite thing about BSMS is how everybody knows each other, creating a tight-knit community with a really friendly atmosphere.

What is your best memory of BSMS?
My best memory from first year has definitely got to be the winter ball. Me and Ben won the award for ‘most iconic duo’.

What is the best hangover cure?
Eat a whole cucumber

Who would win in a fight?
Silly question. Me and Ben are soulmates and would never fight.
