Gowns at the Gaudie

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at St. Andrews chapter.

Disclaimer: this weather is from last year’s Gaudie, no one managed to keep their torches lit for long in Wednesday’s rain!

The Gaudie is the perfect time to get some use out of your academic gown, just make sure that what you’re wearing underneath it doesn’t clash too much. Keep it neutral and let the gown do the talking. Embrace the traditions while you can because they’ll be what you remember most! They also usually make a great revision break.
