When: Monday, March 19th
Where: St Salvator’s Quad, Various Locations in St. Andrews
Time: 12 PM
Cost: FREE (This Event is NON-TICKETED)

Event: A Celebration of Students and Societies
All students (including those involved in societies) gather in St. Salvator’s Quad at 11:45 AM for a 12 PM start
The Rector will enter the Quad on ‘mysterious transport’ and address the students who are there to greet him.
He will then set off around town in a carriage, which is dragged by the students in the Quad
While going around town, Alistair will make various stops at different pubs, coffee shops and buildings to greet all the different societies that are active in St. Andrews. Each society gives the rector a symbolic gift and then helps to drag him to his next location.
Your respective society shall be contacting you in the next few days regarding your location for the Drag. However, we want to encourage ALL STUDENTS to COME TO THE QUAD AT 12 to GREET THE RECTOR!
