This weekend held the most weird and interesting of St Andrews traditions. I have briefly mentioned academic families to you all. Raisin Weekend is a celebration of these families. The tradition goes as such: third and fourth year students 'adopt' Freshers and Study Abroad students (JSAs and JYAs), to be their 'children'. Their job is basically to help their children get acquainted with university life.
We exited the quad, had our mum take pictures of us and then made our way back to hall. I had to be careful to not dirty my room with foam while I was getting out of my foam covered clothing. That took some skill. I managed, and realised I was quite quite tired. So after lunch I took a nice long nap.
And that, was Raisin Weekend--the craziest of St Andrews traditions.
