The Director of Student Development and Activites (DoSDA) is responsible for the Students' Association extracurricular activities, including many and varied student societies.
Hello! My name is Jamie Minns and I am your Director of Student Development and Activities for 2018/19. I was elected by the student body to oversee all the activities you can enjoy at St Andrews, so please contact me if you want to get involved or have any queries.
Put simply, I’m responsible for Societies, Subcommittees
and all other affiliated activities - check them out in the Activities
tab! I’m here to help these student groups in any way I can - be it through offering advice or offering general support.
There are literally hundreds of activities to get involved in at St Andrews. You can help organise On the Rocks Art Festival, taste the gastronomic delights of the Fine Food and Dining Society, hitchhike for charity with the Charities Campaign, go hillwalking with Breakaway or try your hand at Quidditch with Dumbledore’s Army.
Or why not join one
of the numerous Academic & Education, Cultural & Faith, Arts, Media & Music, Political & Campaigning, Charitable, Humanitarian & Welfare, Fan & Geek, Activity & Recreation or Food & Drink societies?
There really is an amazing diversity of activities being organised and it is my job to help facilitate them.
As well as coordinating student activities, I also oversee Student Development
. In this capacity I work closely with various University departments such as CAPOD
and the Careers Centre
to work on employability issues and professional skills to make sure that you get the very best opportunities in the Bubble and beyond. I also work with Admissions to promote student activities on Visiting Days.
Whatever you want to get involved with, I am here to help. If you have an idea, are looking for project funding, want to know how to get involved or just want a chat - come in and say hello.
