Being far away from our land and family, and inspired by the community spirit that characterizes Mexicans, together with a desire to share our culture and heritage, has resulted in the formation of Mexican Student societies in almost all British universities.
In 2002, 14 of these societies came together to form MexSocUK: Birmingham, Cambridge, East Anglia Norwich, Edinburgh, Essex, Imperial College, London School of Economics and Political Science, Manchester, Oxford, Reading, Sheffield, Southampton, York and Warwick.
In April 2003, we selected our first executive committee.
The official introduction ceremony took place on the 1st of September 2003, at the Old Building in the London School of Economics. With the presence of the distinguished writer and diplomat Carlos Fuentes Macías, who served as a guest of honour and became a Sponsor of our society.
