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 Shaina Sullivan and I am your Director of Student Development and Activities for 2019/20. 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.
Your University experience extends far outside the classroom and lecture hall, and it is the DoSDA’s job to oversee all the incredible extracurricular activities you can get involved with. Whether this is a society, a subcommittee, or your own brand-new idea, I’m here to help you in any way I can – support, advice, or even just a chat!
Part of what makes St Andrews so special are the hundreds of activities you can get involved with – start your own radio show with STAR, observe the night sky with the Astronomy Society, take the stage with Mermaids performing arts, hitchhike for charity with the Charities Campaign, or learn the culinary expertise of the Fine Food and Dining Society.
Or get involved with some of other numerous Academic & Education, Cultural & Faith, Arts, Media & Music, Political & Campaigning, Charitable, Humanitarian & Welfare, Fan & Geek, Activity & Recreation, or Food & Drink societies?
Still haven’t found what you’re looking for – start your own!
We have so many amazing activities who get up to some pretty great things – and it is my job to help facilitate them.
On the Student Development side, my main job is to make sure you have all the resources you need to prepare yourself for life outside the Bubble – whatever path you may choose to take. Focusing on training opportunities, careers events, and more, I work closely with CAPOD and the Careers Centre to keep you informed on the resources available to you and to bring you the resources you’re looking for.
Stop by the middle floor of the Union – in the big glass office – if you have any questions about getting involved, if you have an idea, if you have a society question, or if you just want a chat!
