This is a beautiful university in a beautiful town right on the water. I visited campus while in St Andrews and loved walking around the historic buildings. If you are in the town, definitely walk through campus.

It is so cool to be able to walk around a place where there is so much history. We were able to go into one of the library’s and look around a bit. The history is so amazing here.

Nice beach, kids enjoyed few hours and wonderful views. We spent whole day.... Only downside is to find parking nearby.

Very historic place with wonderful buildings. Great just to walk around and see the architecture of the place. I wonder if the students realize how special this place is.
