BNOC list 2020 nominations have opened

Who do you think is a big name on campus?

We all know those people. The people you go to lectures with, or to Sainsbury's, and you can't walk 2 metres with them without having to stand awkwardly next to them while they chat to someone who you don't know. You have no clue who they are, but your BNOC mate manages to sustain a 10 minute conversation with them.

BNOCs (Big Names on Campus) are the people who get the most reacts on Ticketbridge, are involved in everything and president of a million societies. Or they just chat to literally everyone in the Cindies smoking area every Wednesday.

BNOC nominations can no longer include CUSU sabbs (sorry EPH – you didn't make top 10 last year and you def won't this year xo) or Tab team members (cry). Only actual Cambridge students can be nominated – no alumni, fictional characters or fellows. Sorry.

Happy nominating!
