When and Where? How to avoid ‘Fear of Missing Out’

What with the term starting to dwindle off many may be mistaken in thinking that the social calendar is at a standstill. Far from it: this half of term is one of the most active socially with fresh new events mingling with old time favourites. Now with a lot of these events having limited ticket sales frequently you have...

Dancers Among Us: A Performance for the Performers

This past Thursday night, the Blue Angels dance team members and their friends and family crowded into the Byre theatre plaza where dancers sold raffle tickets and friends chat-ted – the question, ‘so do you know anyone in the show?’ coming up more than once. Migrating into the theatre itself, the audience filled about two thirds of the seats and...

Bacchanalia Reimagined thaws deadline blues

The sight of slightly inebriated revellers in full black tie battling through the cold is not unfamiliar in St Andrews. However, this time they were not heading to Kinkell Byre or Lower College Lawn, instead they were heading to a more unusual location, Younger Hall, for a night of ‘drunken revelry and ritual madness’ that was Bacchanalia. What was immediately...

HeforShe: raising the game in the fight for gender equality

This week saw the launching of a new and interesting society called HeforShe. Made famous by Emma Watson, this movement has been growing more and more in the UK and, unsurprisingly, HeforShe has finally reached our small corner of Scotland. The creative work that has gone into the event is apparent as soon as you walk into the door. Held...

Catwalk 2018: a great night for a greater cause

Last Saturday the long awaited Catwalk Fashion Show came to 601, bringing with it a plethora of diverse fashion brands as well as support for great causes. The most charitable of fashion shows, revelers could be happy knowing that 100% of the money raised went towards The Scottish Refugee Council, Save the Children and Families First, and what’s more...

Eden brings originality to The Vic

Like many things in St Andrews ‘The Vic’ seems to act in complete juxtaposition to the outside world. That is to say that ‘The Vic’ summons up images of cigarette and ale marinated men in their late forties, a Guy Ritchie-esque pub where a look in the toilets may leave you without a sense of smell, and a stroll...

Fight Club 2018 Interview

This April a promising event is launching for the first time in Kinkell Byre. One of St Andrew’s newest societies, St Andrews Fight Club, is hosting the first annual Fight Club night. On Tuesday 17 April, 600 students will descend on the venue to watch their nearest and dearest (or at least vague acquaintances) throw punches at each other...

Bursting the Bubble: BALLADS

If you peeked into Club 601 most Sunday afternoons or Tuesday evenings, you would likely see students in suede-soled heels all attempting the same set of dance steps in pairs to loud counting. This, if you hadn’t guessed, is when the Ballroom and Latin Society (BALLADS) has its weekly lessons. On the last weekend in February however, the BALLADS...

SAASUM informs and empowers at 2018 summit

As deadlines began to loom you could be forgiven for thinking that students would crawl into their holes, praying for inspiration as the dim light of laptop screens and notification redundant phones continued to offer no help for either a social life or academic future. And surely, even if students were to come out of their flats and halls,...

Ma Bells: rose tinted spectacles or the end of an era?

We are an old university, ancient in fact. Everywhere you look our hallowed town is coated in references and indications to historical relevance. Be it the ever present, infamous PH or annual event such as the Gaudie, legacy is there to be found. It makes me wonder, what will be the legacy of my years at this institution? Will...
