Student Activities

Opportunities to exercise leadership skills and abilities are also available at St. Andrews.  Many positions exist in the Student Government Association ranging from the SGA executive board to the student conduct system to residence hall councils.  Also, each club and organization has its own set of officers. One of the officers or members of each club is a part of the Leadership Council, which meets monthly to discuss issues facing student organizations, keep open the lines of communication, plan campus-wide programs, and receive on-going leadership training for themselves and their organizations. 


Sunday Funday is a series of events taking place on Sundays from 1-5 in the afternoon. These include activities such as Inflatable Water Slides, Flag Football, and Obstacle Courses, among other activities.

Campus Events

Many opportunities for involvement in social activities are provided for St. Andrews students.  Catering to a diverse student body, St. Andrews offers something for everyone.  An array of social events sponsored by residence halls, the Student Activities Union, and other clubs and organizations fill the calendar.  Movies, parties, dances, athletic events, performing artists, comedians, novelty/variety shows, and intramural competitions are all highly anticipated events. Fall Fest is a new event starting this year held in the fall which is kicked off with a weekend of big events, followed by smaller events each night leading up to Fall Break. GANZA is a week long event held annually every spring with many traditional, fun events scheduled including two nights of live music. 

Students use their artistic skills for the Pumpkin Carving Contest. 

Keeping it classy at Winter Formal.


Student groups may elect to host an event on campus in one of several venues:

• Carol Grotnes Belk Main Room is often used for formal events, including our winter formal, casino night, and science and religion round tables.

The double doors can be opened out onto the verandah overlooking the lake.
This space works well for large student groups, is in the center of the campus, and
dining services facilities available for catering are nearby.

• Knight Life is used for comedians, games and contests with prizes, club meetings and a
place for students to congregate, study, and socialize. It is located in the Belk

Center adjacent to the Chapel. Knight Life is equipped with Wi-Fi.

• Farrago is used most often for larger events, in particular our many dances with both student and professional DJs.
It has a patio area and a stage with the capability to handle electrical needs of
small bands. Farrago is slightly removed from the residential portion of campus,
located near the woods just south of the Concord parking lot.




























Students participate in face painting during the Tailgate Party.
Students compete in Grocery Store Bingo for tasty prizes.

The wall is a primary venue for free expression.

The purpose of “The Wall” is to offer members of the community a venue for expression.  Community members are allowed to paint on the white surfaces of the wall on the east side of the lake only.  Painting elsewhere on campus will be considered vandalism and misuse of College property and will be dealt with appropriately.  Any expression is acceptable as long as it is not a personal/slanderous attack or profane for profanity’s sake.  The front part of the wall, facing the Belk Centerbuilding is reserved at all times for the Student Activities Union to advertise community events.
