Preview: Boxing Charity Home Show

For the first time in five years, Olympic-style amateur boxing is back in St. Andrews! Unlike the ‘Fight Club’ event, the ‘Boxing Club Charity Home Show,’ which is on Saturday 17 November, is organized by the university’s boxing club and is backed by the university itself. Will Murdock (social representative) and Blaise Cooper (club president) are confident that this...

Review: DONT WALK V Launch

For many of you first years reading this, you’ll have no idea what DON’T WALK is (unless you read my handy guide to the year in The Saint’s Freshers Magazine). For those who don’t know, it’s one of the most impressive, most exclusive and most decadent of fashion shows that happen every year in second semester. Like many of the...

Szentek’s Third Year Bash – The Story So Far

It’s finally back again – my favorite Kinkell Byre-based event in St Andrews. Szentek has returned for its third year in a row to the famed St Andrews venue and promises to get people dancing any way they can. On Thursday 15 November, the somewhat rave-themed event celebrates yet another successful year which will inevitably be sold out when the night comes. With...

Learning about Port – It’s not just an old man’s drink

Port is a very niche drink – while I’d had it a few times in the past at dinners to me it always seemed like a dad drink. Something my dad and his business friends would drink together and be all fancy and mature. It doesn’t strike me as a very accessible drink, particularly to students. After all what...

Croquet Give it a Go – a hit through the hoop (I think)

A cold but sunny Friday afternoon. The Cabbage Patch park on Hope Street. A group of slightly cold but very tweed covered students huddled around a couple of bottles of lookalike Pimms. The scene is set. I didn’t really have high expectations when going to the croquet society's first social event of the semester. Let's face it – croquet is...

Till Death Do Them Part: A Night to Forget?

As one of their first big events of the term, the Fine Food and Dining society of St Andrews hosted a dinner party at the beautiful Hotel Du Vin. Throughout the ambitious event held over a period of three days, actors would improvise around a core story each night and act out a murder mystery. The premise of the night...

Stunning professionalism at the Ensemble Exposé

Last Wednesday an amazing opportunity fell into my lap. The opportunity? A completely new event, unlike anything that has happened so far this term. The event? The Ensemble Exposé, a student-run business event where they showcased the dresses that are available for rental. Run by Margaux Woellner, a second year, the event is the first of its kind and...

The St Andrews Enterprise Week starts with a flourish

For the Keynote event of the University of St Andrews 2018 Enterprise Week, the St Andrews Business Club partnered with the Enterprise Week student committee to host a discussion panel composed of four outstanding entrepreneurs working in Fife. The event took place this past Monday at Parliament Hall. The panelists discussed their own stories before touching on the event’s...

A Little Sex Education with Sexpression and Mistress Megara

As a first-year, I'd never heard of Mistress Megara Furie - a regular visitor to St Andrews for five years now - but I can now tell you what CBT stands for, what sploshing is, and why the law needs to change in order to secure the safety of sex workers across the UK. 'Off the Cuff' is a part...

Spotlight on art with ‘Ours’ exhibit

'Ours' was a striking first event for the recently founded charitable initiative Capture Collective, featuring art of Scottish scenes and by Scottish artists in the atmospheric Old Wing Dining Room of University Hall. Capture Collective was set up earlier this year by second year art history students, Alex Stephenson and Zoë Berkeley. It is designed to gather together artworks from...
