Off the Rocks and On(to) the Pebbles

The On The Rocks Festival introduces an exciting new spin on a traditional launch party with their On the Pebbles events tomorrow, 15 November. The On the Pebbles events are essentially “a preview of what students and locals can expect to see at our main festival in April,” says committee member Meg Dyson. “It's a day of various events...

Give it some Welly!

You know St Andrews students have had a great night out when the streets are quiet the following morning. Welly Ball 2019 was one of, if not, the best function the University has seen all semester. Its vibrant atmosphere reflected the huge amount of hard work and dedication the committee put into creating it. Not only did the wellington boot attire...

An Interview with the Pan-Asian Careers Initiative

The Pan-Asian Careers Initiative is a non-profit organisation founded and lead by student leaders at the University of St Andrews. Leading up to their 'Opportunities in Asia: Internships and Grad Schemes' event, The Saint interviews the society's president in order to get an inside look into what went into making this event possible, as well as what students have...

Students deserve an authorised platform for ticket resales

Last November, as ticket sales launched for the annual Mermaids Christmas Ball at Kinkell Byre, St Andrews student Harriet Watts Williamson launched a petition calling upon the University of St Andrews Students’ Association to establish a re-sale site or app to ensure that tickets for events are not resold above their original price. The petition was launched after tickets for...

Where were the ghosts and ghouls this Halloween?

Usually, when I am writing an event’s review, I am inclined to wax lyrical about the atmosphere of a function. However, unfortunately it was a case of wind and rain stop-play. This year’s House of Horrors team made an excellent effort to create a thrilling environment, yet did not see the turnout of students they deserved. It seemed to...

Halloween is a big night with varying expectations

As one would expect for a Halloween night, everybody was out getting spooky in the Union. From the full-blown sunflower costumes to the “a hat will suffice,” it is a big night with varying expectations. Many would have low standards for the Union, justifiably, but the Union delivered a quite a banging night (mostly in 601).- However, being a sold-out...

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Our eyes tend to glaze over at the promise of yet another university dance. However, hearing the words ‘welly’ and ‘ball’ in the same sentence causes a lot of students to double-take. Every ball has its own persona and a different style separating it from the others. But Welly Ball’s adventurous attire throws a new, and let’s say practical,...

A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words

During Green Week on Sunday 14 October, three University committees came together in Beacon Bar for An Afternoon of Art and Action. Inklight, Brizo Magazine, and Environment Subcommittee St Andrews invited students to an open conversation to discuss how issues regarding the environment, such as global warming, can be depicted to the public through various art forms. The potential...

INTO the Jungle

This past Wednesday VS, in partnership with the Oxfam society, hosted their second main event of the year and they did not fail in pulling off a successful event for the student population in St Andrews. Despite the rain, cold weather and deadlines that all seem to be approaching far too quickly, VS gave students a well-deserved break which...

A Disappointing Start to the Year

My Opening Ball experience began with every man’s worst nightmare. Having located, washed, and ironed everything I needed to make myself look somewhat presentable (this is no easy task, I assure you), I began the process of actually getting ready. It normally takes me a few goes to remember how to actually tie my dickie bow, so after I’d...
