Fairhurst is closed yet York’s fourth round BNOCs still shine

Another dose of BNOCs

The pubs and clubs are closed, we’re all social distancing and our last term of uni is over before it began. It’s only been a week and you’re probably starting to wonder how you and your siblings ever managed to live in the same house together for so long. Fairhurst revision dates seem like a distant memory, could we be missing the library already?

However, here we have a fresh batch of BNOC nominations for you to sit back and cast your vote on!

Your fourth round nominations are:

Kwangu Simeza

When asked how he felt, Kwangu said:



Izzy Sims

Year: 3rd Year

Course: Social policy, crime and criminal justice

3 words to describe them: Funny, likeable, talkative

Why are they a BNOC?

“She does drama so knows most people for drama soc, also women’s rugby so know all the girls from there. Furthermore she works in vbar and is very talkative so knows people who frequent there. You can’t walk anywhere on campus without her knowing someone.”
