SAASUM Pop-Up Gallery Brings the Rising Continent to St Andrews

It’s funny how one of the most practiced rituals of any event is often the most difficult, the issue of transformation. We are lucky to live in a multinational town, full of students from across the globe. Yet, it is foolhardy to believe that Latin American flair or Germanic cultural depth can be derived from a set of coloured...

The Other Guys: Naughty, Nice, and Absolutely Brilliant

From traditional Christmas carols to silly songs about messing up Christmas songs and other shenanigans the Other Guys’ Naughty or Nice Concert was a fun filled event. The description of the event stated that “The Other Guys want to bring in the Christmas season with you. As the nights get longer and the days get colder, this group of...

St Andrews Green Film Festival Prepares to Educate and Delight Students

When questioned about whether visitors to St Andrews were there to see him Prince William replied "I hope I’m not a tourist attraction – I’m sure that they come here really because St Andrews is just amazing, beautiful place." And he’s right, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded not just by a historic town, but a site of incredible...

Bacchanalia: ‘Drunken Revelry and Ritual Madness’

On the 9th March Younger Hall will be host to the night of ‘drunken revelry and ritual madness’ that is Bacchanalia. But what exactly is Bacchanalia? I chatted to the committee to find out. ‘Bacchanalia isn’t a ball as such,’ says Peter Dorey, ‘which is what makes it so different. We’re trying to break down the ideas of what it...

ELAGA: Passionate People or Pretentious Party?

In the depths of last Semester St Andrews found itself in a lull, as deadlines and the ever decreasing amount of daylight started to make the town sink into itself. However, little did students know that they would soon be summoned from their now uninventive diet of toast and Supernoodles by the arrival of a new event conceived in the drink-drenched house parties of Raisin. As...

Refresh Refreshers: A Fourth Year Plea

See, call me nostalgic but I really like the idea of refreshers, particularly at the Union. The reintroduction to various societies and sports teams, the reunions with various people and of course the agglomeration of various social events that ensure no ones calendars will be empty. I mean after all everybody loves actual freshers week as an introduction to term...

Bursting the Bubble: Kinky Boots

Being at home in London for Christmas is the perfect time to catch up on culture: be a tourist in your own city, pub catch-ups with school friends but best of all is sampling what the West End has to offer. There is so much on at the moment it’s hard to decide which ones to choose. My sister...

Back to The Bubble

Be it the disappearance of January Joggers, the sudden lift of student loans, and the peculiar limbo that comes with realising ‘only needing a seven’ offers no support if you’re averaging a five, the signs are upon us: we have returned to The Bubble once again. First Years will repeat the mistakes of the past, Fourth Years will promise...

My best night of first semester: a fresher’s perspective

What makes for an amazing night out in St. Andrews? Is it the uniqueness of the event? The popularity of it? Is it the open bar? With so many events going on at all times, it can seem overwhelming to choose which one to go to. What if you make the wrong decision? Last semester being my first ever...

Sitara Model Launch showcases the ‘Fashion of the Future’

I wasn’t sure exactly what I would be walking into when I heard about the Sitara Model Launch. All I had heard about the event was that it was an Asian fusion fashion show…what that meant exactly was something I was intrigued to find out. Upon entering the event, you could tell that it fit with a lifestyle of...
