Editorial Board 2019-2020


Annie Smith – editor@thesaint-online.com

Annie Smith is a third-year English and Spanish student from Memphis, Tennessee. She was proudly News Editor for one year before becoming Editor-in-Chief, in which she enjoyed reporting on issues of student housing in St Andrews, the Students’ Association elections, and investigative pieces. When she’s not reporting for The Saint, you can find Annie crossing countries off her travel bucket list, doing yoga in the Union, or taking long walks on the beach (playing Pokémon Go).


Deputy Editor

Archie Batra – print@thesaint-online.com

Archie is a fourth-year History student from a small village in Cheshire, although he claims to be from Manchester whenever he thinks he can get away with it. He started writing for the Viewpoint section at the end of his first year, and slowly (but surely) learned the subtle art of writing opinionated, provocative articles that consistently anger the student community. When he’s not working on his Piers Morgan impression, Archie can often be found reading increasingly niche Byzantine history, and delaying thinking about his post-university life for as long as possible.


Web Editor

Sam Stanford – web@thesaint-online.com

Sam is a third-year Computer Science Student born and raised in Yorkshire. His role as web editor include managing social media, this website and everything else internet related. Away from his computer, you might find Sam getting involved in music, cooking a hearty meal or going for a run on the beach.


Business Manager

Lauren Ross – saint.businessteam@gmail.com

Lauren is a fourth-year Cell Biology student from Motherwell. She joined The Saint at the beginning of her third year of university and quickly realised that she enjoyed business more than science. As the Business Manager, she has the responsibility of funding the paper and creating lucrative partnerships with the local businesses of St Andrews. When she isn’t working for The Saint, Lauren can be found in a lab or in one of St Andrews’ many pubs with friends.


News Editor

Tamara McWilliam – news@thesaint-online.com

Tamara is a third-year English & Art History student from Inverness. She joined The Saint in second-year as deputy news editor, before becoming editor of the section at the end of the April. She now runs the news section, which she hopes to keep trustworthy and reliable while informing students on what they deserve to know. When not digging for news stories, Tamara can be found walking on East Sands, buying house plants and watching Netflix cooking shows.


Viewpoint Editor

Joe Waters – viewpoint@thesaint-online.com

Joe is a second-year International Relations, Philosophy and Classical Studies student hailing from Wakefield in West Yorkshire. Having spent (and loved) a good few months writing for Viewpoint, Joe decided to take things one step further and oversee the section. He is a trainee volunteer Police Officer, so when he isn’t learning to lock up the crims, you can find him avoiding the work he’s supposed to be doing, or otherwise despairing at the bland state of British Politics.


Money Editor

Sanjana Ramaswamy – money@thesaint-online.com

Sanjana Ramaswamy is a second-year Economics and Finance student from New York. In her position as Money Editor, she plans to combine her interests in journalism and economics to bring relevant business and financial stories to the student community. In her previous position as Deputy Money Editor, she introduced a new feature, “St Andrews Economists,” a series focusing on the research interests of the economics faculty. Sanjana is passionate about Bharatanatyam (a classical Indian dance form), reading, and traveling.


Features Editor

Angus Neale – features@thesaint-online.com

Angus is a second-year English student from Buckinghamshire. With a penchant for a good bit of storytelling, he has written features for a year, penning long reads on such pressing issues as Bees and Tidying up. When he’s not writing articles, he’ll be struggling to work through his bedside reading pile before waking up a few hours later for rowing. Angus is excited to uncover aspects of the university that few are aware of.


Events Editor

Stella Gage – events@thesaint-online.com

Stella is a third-year Social Anthropology student from Los Angeles. She joined the Saint in her first year because she loves writing articles and sharing her thoughts with her fellow classmates. When Stella is not going to or writing about events, she can be found playing polo, painting, or playing her guitar.


Arts & Culture Editors

Olivia Hendren – arts@thesaint-online.com

Olivia is a fourth year Social Anthropology student from Florida. She joined the Saint in her second year as the paper’s first Food editor and has now taken on the sole responsibility of Arts and Culture editor. Olivia can always be spotted in a scarf or hat, daydreaming of the tropical weather that she left behind. When not working for The Saint, Olivia can be found cooking for her friends, watching true crime documentaries, illustrating for the paper, and avoiding the Scottish weather at all costs.


Annabel Steele – arts@thesaint-online.com

Annabel is a fourth-year English student from Manchester. She only started at the Saint in her third year, but she’s loving every second. When she isn’t writing about the creative scene in St Andrews, she’s probably rehearsing for a play, making her own music, booking her next travelling adventure or drinking red wine at the Rule.


Sport Editor

Charlotte Cohen – sport@thesaint-online.com


Charlotte is a third year philosophy and management student. She joined The Saint at the beginning of her second year as deputy sport editor. If she’s not standing in the rain on a Wednesday afternoon, then she’s probably inside the sports centre covering some of our indoor sports.


Photography Chief

Samantha Chinomona – photography@thesaint-online.com

Samantha is a third-year Computer Science student from Chicago who has enjoyed taking photos for The Saint in her previous role as deputy photography chief and hopes to continue the high quality of the photography section and the photos throughout The Saint. When she’s not designing websites or graphics, you can usually find her travelling, camera or iPhone in hand, doing some insane acrobatics (i.e. hanging off staircases, waterfalls, and cliffs) in the pursuit of the perfect shot, and occasionally working on her degree.


Video Editor

Wendy Brooking – video@thesaint-online.com

Wendy is a fourth year Film Studies and Geography joint honours student. As Video Editor, she enjoys the team’s capacity to span the different sections of the newspaper, from filming local marches and society events to recording interviews with sabbatical candidates in the run-up to elections. When not behind the camera, Wendy can be found out on long walks, competing with friends at board games and probably eating too much pasta.


Illustration Chief

Rachel Cripps – illustration@thesaint-online.com

Rachel Cripps is a third-year philosophy student from Victoria, BC in Canada. She joined The Saint in first year as illustration deputy, and hopes to expand the illustration team to create more unique and eye-catching artwork for the paper. Outside of The Saint, Rachel can be found designing tattoos, playing guitar, running events for her hall, volunteering with animals, and voice-acting for the largest student-run radio play in the UK. Oh, and working on her degree.

Senior Copy Editors

Tom Morley – production@thesaint-online.com

Tom is a second-year student studying International Relations. As a senior copy editor, he is responsible for ensuring that the writing in The Saint meets journalistic norms. When he isn’t copy-editing, Tom enjoys drinking coffee, talking about politics, and writing short blurbs about himself.


Hilary Chan – production@thesaint-online.com

Hilary is a second-year Psychology and Philosophy student from Hong Kong. English is her second language so she knows what nominatives and datives are. When she’s not copyediting for The Saint, you don’t know what she’s doing because she doesn’t put that on her bio.
