Condita Ab Consilium
Before there was CNERS, another club reigned over the classical world at UBC. The Religious Studies Student Association was founded in 1996 and was lead by Tammy McCurry.
In the year 2000, a challenger arose, and the Religious Studies Student Association was taken over by the Society for Classical, Near Eastern & Religious Studies. The Scanners were now in power, and brought new initiatives to the empire, such as pottery nights and lunch time lectures.

In 2003, Caesars Mankey & Vincent faced an uprising, and after many battles, the CNERS came out on top as the victors.The club was renamed the Classical, Near Eastern & Religious Studies Student Association, with the much snappier abbreviation of CNERS (pronounced ‘sinners’).
Many great emperors have ruled the CNERS over the past several years. They lead forth poetry readings, film festivals, social nights, beer gardens and museum visits, which brought great happiness to all members. Many of the names of our presidents have yet to be uncovered, but they lead honourably.
