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...

Beast from the East causes events chaos

It is well known in the minds of many students what happened on that fateful night last year, one that left gown-clad guests and fashion fanatics left, quite literally, out in the cold. Yet, those who do remember (I struggle) what happened when FS was cancelled in 2017 will put forth a tapestry of debauchery enough to make any...

dont walk triumphs

I sometimes wonder if I will ever be an adult. At twenty-one people insist that I’ve left the peculiar world of childhood and adolescence behind. After all, I can join the army, get married, and can even quench my thirst in the United States with a Smirnoff Ice should the mood take me. Besides the prevalence of alcopops that...

UBUNTU 2018: ‘A Cultural Masterpiece’

On the Saturday 10 February 2018 the St Andrews Afro Caribbean Society hosted a cultural masterpiece of a showcase on the (somewhat) famed 601 stage. A mishmash of dance, fashion and a beautiful narrative story of African legends the night was a resounding success and despite it being something I had never heard of before I’m now determined to attend...

DRAFP Ball earns infamous reputation

Where to start with “The Infamous DRAFP Ball”? How about the most obvious change from previous years: the name of the event. Why is this ball, out of all the hall balls infamous? Scott McNicol, coordinator of the event this year, explained the rebranding. In an interview before the ball he said that he wanted to make this event unique...

Bursting the Bubble: Anstruther

Our Bursting the Bubble articles thus far have taken us rather far afield from our small Scottish town. Even Edinburgh’s distance builds up if you require a bus to Leuchars, train, and tram to reach your location. Happily one can find a break from The Bubble even closer to home, with a range of options lying just a short...

Music in St Andrews: more than meets the ear?

One of my friends, who lives in Gannochy, told me recently that one of their favourite things about coming home from class is walking past Younger Hall and hearing the sounds of both individuals and ensembles practising. This, to me, symbolises the rich and diverse musical life at St Andrews. It would be easy to assume, considering the university...
