Students deserve an authorised platform for ticket resales

Last November, as ticket sales launched for the annual Mermaids Christmas Ball at Kinkell Byre, St Andrews student Harriet Watts Williamson launched a petition calling upon the University of St Andrews Students’ Association to establish a re-sale site or app to ensure that tickets for events are not resold above their original price. The petition was launched after tickets for...

Halloween is a big night with varying expectations

As one would expect for a Halloween night, everybody was out getting spooky in the Union. From the full-blown sunflower costumes to the “a hat will suffice,” it is a big night with varying expectations. Many would have low standards for the Union, justifiably, but the Union delivered a quite a banging night (mostly in 601).- However, being a sold-out...

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Our eyes tend to glaze over at the promise of yet another university dance. However, hearing the words ‘welly’ and ‘ball’ in the same sentence causes a lot of students to double-take. Every ball has its own persona and a different style separating it from the others. But Welly Ball’s adventurous attire throws a new, and let’s say practical,...

A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words

During Green Week on Sunday 14 October, three University committees came together in Beacon Bar for An Afternoon of Art and Action. Inklight, Brizo Magazine, and Environment Subcommittee St Andrews invited students to an open conversation to discuss how issues regarding the environment, such as global warming, can be depicted to the public through various art forms. The potential...

INTO the Jungle

This past Wednesday VS, in partnership with the Oxfam society, hosted their second main event of the year and they did not fail in pulling off a successful event for the student population in St Andrews. Despite the rain, cold weather and deadlines that all seem to be approaching far too quickly, VS gave students a well-deserved break which...

A Disappointing Start to the Year

My Opening Ball experience began with every man’s worst nightmare. Having located, washed, and ironed everything I needed to make myself look somewhat presentable (this is no easy task, I assure you), I began the process of actually getting ready. It normally takes me a few goes to remember how to actually tie my dickie bow, so after I’d...

Winning Women Conference 2019

This past Monday marked the fifth annual “Winning Women Conference” held by the Lumsden Club. The all-female club is known on campus for their outstanding work with charity and niche events which set them apart from other clubs and societies. This event, however, focused on a more serious matter. Held in Parliament Hall, the Lumsden Club hosted a panel...

What is the Other Ball, and what to look forward to?

What could be more St Andrews than an a capella ball situated in the iconic buildings of St Salvador's Quad? Join The Other Guys next weekend to see them perform some of their biggest hits as they give us a hint into what they'll be singing this next coming year. The Other Guys were set up in 2004 in order...

House of Horror Launch Party

“What is a launch event?” I asked myself after readily signing up to review one. I knew many important things are launched: political campaigns, rockets, Beyoncé fragrances; but I didn’t quite know what to expect as I made my way to BrewCo North Street (NewCo for the kids) yesterday evening. One thing can be said for certain: I had...

Two Takes on Starfields 2019

As one of the most highly anticipated nights of the year, Starfields is the culmination of Freshers Week at St Andrews. The event has enjoyed a long-standing history of being one of the most unique and enjoyable nights out, and this year was no exception. In this review, we will be comparing the experiences of someone who had never...
