Arjun Prakash is one of the first students to take part in our new non-residential membership program. Below, he discusses his experience thus far.
Q: As a non-residential student, how have you involved yourself in the St Andrew’s community?
A: Simply, I have tried to ‘turn up’ as much as possible. I have attended and thoroughly enjoyed the larger events like the Highlander Ball, and supported at sports games. However for me, making an appearance at meals and having some quality banter has been the easiest way of making new friends and involving myself in the Andrew’s community.
Q: What have you found to be the most enjoyable part of the St Andrew’s experience?
A: The social life has been the stand-out of my College experience. The Students’ Club, unique to the College, throws the best social events. It has been really easy to make new friends, from all walks of life.
Q: How has being a non-residential student enhanced your university experience?
A: Being non-residential still grants access to the academic life program at St Andrew’s. I am genuinely grateful for the tutorials available at the College; the additional academic support definitely blunted the blow of assignments and end-of-semester exams.
