Raisin Weekend at St. Andrews University in Scotland is believed to date back several hundred years to the university’s early days when first-year students would give senior students a pound of raisins as a thank-you for helping them to adjust to university life. In more recent years, the weekend has evolved into a more raucous event with wine instead of raisins. The celebration culminates on Monday when first-years participate in a huge shaving cream foam fight in St Salvator’s Quad.
