Hi All, 

I hope you've either finished all your deadlines now or are very nearly there! We've a big weekend coming up this weekend for Saints Sport in London with the Scottish Varsity match and the 600th Sports Alumni Ball - hopefully a couple of events that will be going for years to come and that you can all get involved with in the future!

1) REVITALISE WEEK - 3rd-7th December
Next week aims to draw students' attention to the various services available across the University of St Andrews to allow them to fulfil their potential. Of particular use at this time of year, with exams just around the corner, Revitalise Week will include tips on time management, healthy eating, study skills, access to support services and opportunities to get active and energise your brain.

8) Club Review Matrix - Friday 21st December

Many thanks to those clubs who completed the initial round of Club Review Matrices, the information gathered is very interesting and some headlines will be fed back to the clubs and around the University shortly.  The deadline for the next submission is midday on Friday 21st December and this is for all of the information on your club for the first semester of this academic year, 2012-13.  You can also make reference to plans for next semester but don’t worry about leaving some rows blank if they are not applicable.  Please complete this as fully and accurately as possible and don’t hesitate to contact the AU for support, clarification or input at any stage. Any submission can be an updated version of the one that you have sent through previously or on a new version. Raise any issues with Pete Burgon on in the first instance.

9) Exec Minutes - 27/11/12
Please find attached the minutes from our Exec meeting this week. 

Good luck to all you rugby boys tomorrow!!
