Editorial: We’re concerned about drugs. Isn’t the Students’ Association?

Earlier today Chloe Hill, the president of the Students' Association, sent an email to the student body about the drugs survey The Saint is currently running. The Saint is proudly independent of the Association, which of course is entitled to its views. However, the email has raised some concerns that we would like to address. The main point of Ms...

And Now His Watch Is Ended. As well as being the title of this week’s terrific episode of Game of Thrones (come on, there was always going to be a Thrones reference in one of these editorials), this is the last print edition overseen by the current editorial team. We’ve come a long way, but there is still much to be...

It’s getting to that stage. The end of  term looms, the end of degrees for some (myself included). You could well have already been keeping track of this fourth year state of mind through Caitlin Hamilton’s Features column (on page 14). What to do next? I've been constantly reminded this year that journalism is an unforgiving field of work and is horrendously...

The Saint is back in paper form, and is better than ever. Now I’m going to give you some justification for that there statement. One, we’re steadily improving how the paper looks. More varied layouts, more links to online content... it just looks more professional. Of course it’s a continuous process, so we’re by no means where we ultimately want...

Issue 170. A good round number. To celebrate The Saint reaching this milestone, I’m going to do something that I haven’t in quite some time and write a piece for the paper about sport. Stop howling in protest. Yes, sport isn’t usually let out of its cage (the back five pages of the paper), but it’s time to shake things...

21 December 2012. The world survived it, The Saint survived it, but our place in a wee hut next to the Union did not. 2013 has brought in a great deal of change for us. And, as you have correctly guessed, that is what I am going to tell you about now. Firstly, a new office. An arrangement was agreed...

Editorial: Issue 168

This is a Saint of lasts. The last issue of 2012, the last issue for some of our committee members and the last issue put together in our office. Yes, that unremarkable metal hut behind the recycling bins has seen many, many editions created over the years, the produce of the inspiration and suffering of countless editorial staff. Come 2013,...

If you’ve survived the deadline drama with a shred of sanity left intact, you can look forward to exercising your right to democracy this week. The United States decided to re-elect President Obama last week (see page 9 for J. H. Ramsay’s view on that), and this week it is St Andrews’ turn to go to the polls. We’re...

We welcome you back to the print edition of The Saint after a three week break. The break with our fortnightly tradition is a result of there being no Reading Week for us to take a natural breather. Speaking of which, there will be another three weeks before our next issue, print fans. Two stories between that last issue and...

Editorial: Issue 165

Welcome to issue #165 of The Saint, your independent student newspaper. For an organisation which has always been known for its printed output, we’ve been more than a little busy online. Our freshly-designed website was launched two weeks ago today, and if you haven’t visited www.thesaint-online.com already, then you really should. It’s the best place for the latest St...
