What to Expect at the Fayres

Don’t forget to visit The Stand’s booth at the Freshers’ Fayre!

It might be a small town and university in size, but if there is one thing that St Andrews excels at, it is the range of clubs and societies that it provides for its students. From pool to politics, from trampolining to Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Appreciation Society, societies provide the perfect chance for students of all years to meet new people and develop new hobbies and skills.

As the Sports Fayre and the Freshers’ Fayre will show you, there is no doubt that you will find like-minded individuals while at uni. Here is a brief overview of some of the clubs and societies you’ll be able to find at the Freshers’ Fayre, on Sunday, 11 September and the Sports Fayre on Saturday, 10 September.

Sport

Saint Sport has an impressive range of sport on offer – from dancing, to basketball, to swimming. Whether you already play or aren’t able to catch a ball, there is a sport for everyone of every ability. More unusual sports on offer include shinty (a form of Scottish hockey), archery, and aikido (a modern form of Japanese martial arts).

Sports teams also provide the opportunity to break out of the bubble. Rowing is held in a river outside St Andrews, and Riding and Polo both practice a little ways outside of town. St Andrews Snowsports (SAS) holds a yearly ski trip in France over the winter holiday, while Surf, Sailing and Ballroom Dancing all embark on spring break trips centred around their activity.

Many clubs welcome students who don’t even play sport: Clay Pigeon Club, Riding, and Polo all have active contingents of “social” members, who attend the club drinks and dinners without participating in the competitions. By far the largest sports social is Sinners, which takes place at the Union once a month and is a chance for you to really get to know your teammates throughout an evening of drinking and dancing.

Fashion

The town’s four leading fashion shows will all be in attendance at this year’s Freshers’ Fayre.

For the edgy and experimental, the DONT WALK Charity Fashion Show is recognisable by its striking black and white logo and dark blue committee jackets.

The St Andrews Charity Fashion Show (“FS”) can be found promoting Starfields, their upcoming launch event.

Search for Catwalk, the official fashion show of the Union, near the Charities Campaign booth.

Finally SITARA*, the only show to promote Asian culture, will likely occupy one of the more colourful booths near its parent organisation, the Sanskriti Society.

For the less outdoorsy, the opportunities are still limitless. Animal Welfare, Save the Elephants and Wildlife & Conservation are excellent choices for those who have a passion for the world around them (including four legged friends). St Andrews Voluntary Service also runs very popular volunteering schemes focused on animals and the environment. 

Culture societies such as the Scandinavian, French, German, Japanese and Afro-Caribbean societies are an excellent accompaniment to a student who is studying the language or culture, has cultural or ethnic heritage in one of the countries, or just wants to learn more about the country in particular. For those of you with roots in multiple countries, the Third Culture Society unites those of worldly backgrounds. 

Students may also be looking to get involved in various charities, and Amnesty International, Oxfam and Save the Children are globally recognisable names. By joining the societies, you are helping to make a difference to those who are dependent on the aid and care these organisations provide.

So if you’re a fresher wanting to meet like-minded people or a current student wanting to try out something new, there is something for everyone in St Andrews. From the skills and interests you’ll develop, to the memories and strong friendships you will form, the clubs and societies you choose to join will form an integral part of your St Andrews’ experience.

A full list of societies and their constitutions can be found on the university website. A full list of clubs can be found on saints sport.

  4. Würden Sie aktuell eher Bitcoin kaufen oder eine alternative Kryptowährung? Durch die ordentliche Rallye sollten Anleger jetzt nicht blind Bitcoin und Ethereum kaufen. Zwar stimmt das Momentum aktuell und die beiden Kryptos konnten wichtige Marken im Chart überwinden, doch Kryptowährungen bleiben nach wie vor hochvolatil. Bitcoin und Ethereum können ganz schnell auch wieder einbrechen.  Vielleicht ist Taproot der Startschuss für die massive Bitcoin-Rally von 2021 2022. Top Analysten wie Matthew Hyland sehen die aktuelle Bitcoin Prognose bereits bei 250.000 US-Dollar im Januar 2022. Auch PlanB, ein weiterer Top-Analyst rechnet noch dieses Jahr, dass Bitcoin mindestens auf 100.000 US-Dollar steigt. Das würde bedeuten, dass Bitcoin erstmals einen sechsstelligen Wert erreicht. Für PlanB ist das aber nicht alles. Er Sieht die Möglichkeit, dass Bitcoin die unglaubliche Marke von 1 Million USD je BTC im Jahr 2025 knackt.

    Der Vorteil des gemeinschaftlichen Minings besteht darin, dass man zusammen über eine höhere Hash Rate verfügt als alleine. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit, den nächsten Block in Bitcoin zu finden, lässt sich mit der dieser Formel errechnen: SALES+49 511 515464-0 Wer einem Bitcoin Mining Pool beitreten möchte, sollte seinen Rechner im Vorhinein dementsprechend aufrüsten. Der Bitcoin Mining Verdienst wird von den Pools auf die einzelnen Bitcoin Miner nach zur Verfügung gestellter Rechenleistung aufgeteilt. Je mehr Leistung der einzelne Miner also in den Pool einbringt, desto höher ist der Anteil an BTC, der ihm ausgezahlt wird. Berechne mit unserem Solo-Mining-Rechner ganz einfach und individuell, basierend auf verschiedenen Faktoren, die Wahrscheinlichkeit einen gültigen Bitcoin-Block als Solo-Miner zu finden. Viel Spaß beim Rechnen und vor allem: Viel Glück!

  7. As technology got better, the humble slot machine underwent a few more game changers. Most of the heavy metal used in early slots got scrapped in favor of lighter, wooden parts. Another major change to the slot machine was in the mechanics. Soon, machines were designed with the capacity for adjustment. This meant that slot machine owners could make adjustments to the payout frequency, or volatility. Jackpot slots are the most sought-after type of slot available at online casinos. Some slots have preset jackpot amounts that are typically broken down into Mini, Minor, and Mega sizes. The amount you can win at a jackpot slot varies based on your standard bet size. This is truly where the big scores can be realized. Let’s be honest, playing online slots or mobile real money slots differs from the free play where you may be getting a good time, but that’s it – nothing to gain from it. So the real money slot machines – that’s a different story as you can be generously rewarded for taking risks.
