Alice Boniface
Hi, I’m Boni and I’ve just graduated with a degree in Politics and History. My main responsibility for Freshers’ Week is logistics – in other words, I’m timetable queen! We run hundreds of daytime activities from paintballing and quad biking to St. James tours and food trips, all to make sure you have the best start to your time in Newcastle. With so many different options it’s my job to ensure that they are spread out so you have the opportunity to get involved in as much as you want.   Read More
