Welcome to Smith

Probitas, Integritas, Autonomia.

"Smith House is the oldest of nine houses in the BCS Community. Our pride, spirit, sense of brotherhood, and care for each other, give it a family ambiance and transform a residence into a home for twenty-four young adults. Smith boys are given autonomy and encouraged to become house captains, tuck president, head of house, as well as serve on the activities and the discipline committee. This year, we are well represented in as many of our members assumed leadership roles at the BCS."

The origins of Smith

Mr. S. Percy Smith joined the BCS community in 1910. He left the school in 1916 for three years, as he enlisted in WWI with McGill Heavy Siege Battery. When he returned to BCS he was Housemaster for a year before becoming Headmaster in 1920 and remaining so until 1931. While he was Head he completed the move from Bishop’s University campus to where BCS can be found today. He also designed the hockey rink.

What we like to do

In addition to House dinners and BBQs, we also host our own events. We have Grey Cup (November) and Super Bowl (February) parties to keep in line with the theme of our house. These are our most popular events. At the end of the year we do our annual paintballing trip, which leads to a first floor versus second floor showdown.
