Raging success for Hot Dub Time Machine

Ok, so all I can say about Hot Dub is that it was amazing. The music: amazing. The DJ: amazing. The crowd: Ah-maz-ing. In my honest opinion this was one of the best nights so far at the Union, which is difficult to say considering Freshers' week went so well this year. Hot Dub has a big reputation to live...

House of Horror shows promise

I am of the firm belief that Halloween is truly a special time of the year. Not only do you get to see how tolerant some people are to the truly freezing cold weather in their pursuits to be the best cat, mouse, or sexy you’ve ever seen, Halloween also comes with candy, costumes, and delicious themed drinks...

Kingdom Darts promises to provide an unmissable night

Now I’ll be the first to admit I have no idea about darts. Bulls-eye is basically all the terminology I know and I’ve never even seen a match fully – it’s more just something that always seems to be on in the pub for some reason. But this week promises to pique my interest in the lesser-known sporting world...

Ruth Davidson comes to town

Last week (Friday 21 September), the Scottish Conservative Party leader Ruth Davidson came to St Andrews for an event organised by Topping & Company to promote the release of her new book ‘Yes She Can: Why Women own the Future’. Ms Davidson’s book has been described as an ‘equalities manifesto for the modern age’, drawing together a series of...

Never had a dream come true: S Club 3 Review

Viewing the Wikipedia page for bands that broke up three years after I was born, I have to admit that I barely recognise the names, and if you asked me to name a song from any of their discographies I would be at a loss. So, despite being a huge S Club fan as a child, you can’t blame...

The Other Guys: Our Leavers’ Concert: The Parting Glass Review

Ever since I first applied to St. Andrews, I had heard about ‘The Other Guys'. Eleven handsome eligible bachelors have been bringing unseen amounts of energy and enthusiasm to their live shows. Thanks to their dedicated fan base on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Wikipedia and even their own website, we are never disappointed! But that’s not what we take away from...

Lumsden event to Light Up The Night

Let’s be honest, we’ve all done it. For some reason you wake up one morning, eyes still struggling to get in focus, groaning as the resounding hammer blow of an unattended iPhone alarm continues its steady assault on your hangover. You’ve been promising yourself this all semester, an inner ultimatum against the ever increasing amount of naps in your...

St Andrews Charity Polo Tournament triumphs in the summer sun

Bri Paterson: Deputy events editor Picture this: the sun is out and shining, the air is cool and crisp,  you’ve got a glass of champagne in your hand and you’re surrounded by what appears to be half the university all gathered to stand around and watch some polo. In short, you’ve basically achieved a state of bliss. This is what...

The Gaudie Celebrates St Andrews’ Most Heroic Alumni Once Again

There are a great many words that I would choose to describe students at St Andrews. However, not all of them right for publication in a reputable newspaper, so in this case debaucherous and seagull-hating will have to suffice. Yet, although there are so many ways to describe the modern strain of student, both here and around the UK,...

GIG Speaker Series brings business leaders to St Andrews

Intern or die, that seems to be the mantra surrounding much of student life at the moment. The combination of student debt, increasing competition, and the inevitable alcoholism that will continue to plague our bank accounts long into our days post-university means the world outside The Bubble is more daunting than ever before. In fact, if you're lucky enough...
