When asked about what is the best thing at St Andrew’s, Bray said “The ability to make so many new friendships and meet so many different people from different backgrounds. Also, the fact that you are always with your friends and live with each other makes the time here much more enjoyable and fun.”

Bray has been a welcoming face to incoming members of the college and is excited about all the events Drew’s has packed into 2024.

Anna Hunt – Palladian Secretary

Leading our Palladian pursuit this year, Anna is dedicated to enhancing the vibrant cultural scene within our college. Collaborating with St Andrew’s talented musicians, theatre enthusiasts and artists, Anna is looking forward to creating a seamless bridge between the worlds of Rawson, Rosebowl and Palladian, ensuring that both aspects are equally revered and celebrated within the college community.

Anna grew up in Grenfell, in the central west of NSW. She travelled from the country to study a Bachelor of Nursing at The University of Sydney. During her time here, she has been involved in a range of activities, including multiple Rosebowl campaigns and on the Mother’s Day Committee.

Anna believes St Andrew’s has been instrumental in both her academic and athletic pursuits. She says ‘Drew’s tutoring programs have significantly aided my academic achievements, while the well-equipped facilities, including the gym and ovals, have supported my sporting goals. Furthermore, the diverse range of extracurricular activities has not only enabled me to meet new people but also helped me establish valuable networks and forge lifelong friendships.’

Clancy Aboud – Intercollegiate Representative

As the Intercollegiate Representative for 2024, Clancy is highly motivated for Drew’s to solidify its place in the intercol community, balancing its identity as a formidable presence in the sporting arena or Palladian stage, yet remaining a much-loved and respected college beyond that.

Clancy went to Oxley College and grew up in Burrawang in the Southern Highlands before college. Now, she is studying for a Bachelor of Communications in Journalism at UTS. She says she chose St Andrew’s as it is only one of two colleges that offer positions to students outside of USYD. Now that she is here, Clancy says “I threw myself in almost everything this place had to offer (with varying degrees of success). Some of my highlights would include the Women’s 7s rugby comp, B-Lane, my role as a Pastoral Care Leader in 2023 and my spot as Head Editor of Drew’s News which I am continuing in 2024.”

Clancy is excited to continue working away at the big plans the House Committee has developed and is dedicated to ensuring they achieve all their goals in serving the college.
