Hello, wonderful Sinners, and welcome to your new home!

It's been a long time in the making but now it's finally here and we're chuffed to bits with it.




We've given it shiny new phpBB messageboards with all of the old posts and none of the old bugs.




It's got new maps of all that's important in St Andrews with direct links to articles in the new wiki-based Sinner's Guide to St Andrews, written by the people who know it best - that's you.




You can write magazine-style articles for the main website too - news and sports reports, write-ups of social events, reviews, or just anything else you want to get out there.




Speaking of social events, we've also brought the Calendar up to date, you can browse and add details of society and town happenings with ease.


More details on our new features after the break!

The History of the Rector

Simon Pepper's Rectorial DragThe post of Lord Rector of the University of St Andrews is the oldest of its kind, dating back to the university’s foundation in the early fifteenth century (1410) when it was first filled by Abbot Lawrence of Lindores, who rejoiced in the title: “Inquisitor of Heretical Pravity in Scotland”. In the early days of the office, the Rector was chosen by the doctors, masters and students of the university to be the head of their society.
