Bar Society is a selection subject to the Student Organization at BI in Oslo (SBIO). The committee consists of 80 volunteer bartenders and DJs who runs Kroa. With weekly events we want to offer the students a good time after school.
Bar Society is a social society where you can meet and build networks with your fellow students at BI. During the year we arrange different gatherings, cabin trips and visits to many of our sponsors and suppliers. Our goal is to be attentive and outgoing students who focus on joy, pleasure and unity.
