Board Newsletter



This semester has been a bit of a whirlwind.  From Class Rep elections, RaisinAccommodation Fairsmulticultural events to raising awareness of the environment and local issues, we and our student groups have been busy.

We created a handy guide to help you find your perfect study spot.  This information went in over 1000 exam packs and was distributed around halls and departments.

The highlight of our semester from an events point of view has to be our two all building events.  Halloween and Winter Wonderland.  Click on the film and image below to take you to coverage of the events.

12 Days of Christmas

We know December can be a difficult month for students, holidays are close but exams are closer so we've put together 12 amazing days of things to do and treats to have in the hope that we'll make December that little bit better.

Radio Scotland, Take the Floor

On the 22nd November, we had the pleasure of hosting Take the Floor.  This was an amazing chance to show off our venue to local people who wouldn't normally venture through our doors and also a great for Town and Gown relations. Listen to the show here.

Societies and Activities

Community Relations does a huge amount for our Town and Gown relations, especially in the run-up to and including St Andrews Day.  
We are a small town that plays host to a large and diverse community. It is inevitable that issues of contention arise.  Community Relations aims to have community-wide, rather than just student-wide initiatives.  They also facilitate communication and interaction amongst all residents.

Community Relations role is really vital in continuing good and better relationships between local people and students who live in the amazing community of St Andrews.  The above picture captures the huge outdoor ceilidh in celebration of St Andrews Day.



We love Nightline and everything they do.  They had a great Nightline Awareness Week in November.  Here’s a picture of Hugsy outside the Union.
