Thousands of students gathered for a giant foam fight as part of a traditional celebration at the University of St Andrews.
Participants gathered on the Lower College Lawn to take part in the annual event on Monday.
St Andrews is home to a large number of academic families; a tradition where older students adopt first year students as ‘children’ and can help guide them in a system of mentoring.
Raisin weekend follows on from a period in which first year students join with older students in a system of mentoring as a means of welcoming new faces to campus.
First year mentees are called ‘children’ and their mentors are called ‘parents’.
On Raisin Weekend ‘children’ are entertained by their ‘parents’ and are encouraged to play pranks and games.
On Raisin Monday, the children dress in fancy dress, are given strange objects with a traditional Latin inscription, and are let loose on Lower College lawn for the enormous shaving foam fight.
Historically, the event saw students bring their academic parents a special gift.
Those taking part this year are donating items for the Storehouse Foodbank in St Andrews.
