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...

Body confidence takes centre stage at Label 2018

Last Friday in the Rufflets Hotel just outside of St Andrews a select few were privy to one of the most beautiful and iconic fashion shows that St Andrews has to offer. For those who don’t know, Label is one of the few events in St Andrews where lumps, bumps and *gasp* even an unwaxed bikini line can be...

Sitara* 2018: ‘An Unforgettable Night’

Sitara* promised St Andrews an unforgettable night. With their preview shows, cocktail nights and extensive pre-show coverage, it was hard not to expect the best. They certainly delivered. They delivered in a way which was unusual: it is not an event which focuses directly on one aspect of fashion, nor a particular fashion aesthetic (although the organisers have termed...

ELAGA 2018: A Lesson for St Andrews

Life is full of disappointments, something that I know all too well. From a young age I was led to believe that Bombay Sapphire, the renowned gin brand, was as rich a blue as the vessel that contained it. Years later I would hanker to the bar with my ‘driver’s license’, registered in a country I’d never been to,...

POLO 2018: Back and Bigger Than Ever

This week I got the chance to sit down with the St Andrews Polo committee, in preparation for the big event on Saturday 21 April, which is coming up quickly. This year everyone’s favourite outdoor event on the St Andrews Calendar is going to be bigger and better than ever with larger sponsors, and more attendees than ever before....

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...
