It’s like the illuminati. We are everywhere. Going to BNU felt like you were part of one big family. Studying, living with and eating with the same people every day creates a huge bond. Still to this day someone will introduce themselves as being ‘from BNU’. It gives you a great sense of family and community.Simon Lloyd Global Creative Director at adam&eveDDB
