• About the Hill BSS

Our Story

The Hill Business Students’ Society (BSS) represents the students of the Paul J. Hill School of Business at the University of Regina. Our BSS Executive and Council of over fifty student volunteers organize and facilitate value-adding events and activities for over 1600 students. We believe in practising ethical business values while being leaders and role models in our faculty and community. We provide opportunities for students to practice their networking skills, interact with business community members and teach students to find a balance between work and play in their everyday lives.

Engage.

One of our goals on the Hill BSS is to engage business students at the University of Regina. We want students to step out of their comfort zones and know that there is so much more to learn about business than is taught in the classroom, like networking skills for instance! We are also passionate about getting students out there to meet people and create life-long friendships and connections that will benefit them far beyond their degrees.

Enrich.

Another one of our main goals on is the enrichment of the university experience for business students at the Paul J. Hill School of Business. We do this by hosting numerous flagship events throughout the year, by providing learning and networking opportunities for our international and domestic students, by sending students to conferences and case competitions around the world, and through our various mentorship programs.

Excite.

The opportunities in the business world are endless, and we want students to be excited about that! Through our various networking events and conference opportunities we strive to show our students that the sky is the limit for them and that their future in business is truly something to be excited about.
