Any comments to do with college will most likely be related to mine and other students’ experiences as Lower 6th Symonds students. Letters could be stories, opinions or even problems (just call me Agony Aunt Dani!) Send anything to: dbirks9@students.psc.ac.uk

Of my first week at Symonds, only one part really sticks in my mind. Read the rest of this entry »

This month sees ‘The Buzz’s’ full feature length interview, with  Winchester’s own, Frank Turner.  After gaining much airplay on the likes of Radio 1, his single ‘Reasons to be an Idiot’ has become his biggest hit to date.  I caught up with him this month to talk to him about his music, university and Winchester!  If you have any comments on the interview feel free to leave them below!
