Pat Mathewson, outgoing Association President, and Sarah Thompson, outgoing Athletic Union President who both served two terms posted emotional messages online as they stepped down.
Mr Mathewson said, “Last day in the sabb office. Thank you to those who gave me two of the finest years and some fondest memories I will ever have. I am forever in your debt.
“St Andrews will always be home.”
Ms Thompson said, “Thousands of emails, hundreds of meetings and opportunities, 60 sports clubs, 2 years – one incredible experience!”
