As a student, I remind myself each day, how blessed I am to be at the University of St Andrews, where I can simply finish lectures and take the scenic route to the library, a small coffee shop, or head back to my apartments. As I walk, I hear the bird’s song, the clashing waves from the North Sea, and the sound of golf balls hit once the golfer takes his/her swing and makes contact with the ball... just some of the very pleasing sounds when walking around St Andrews.

Scotland is one of the four constituent countries that make up the United Kingdom. It occupies the northern third of the island of Great Britain. The Kingdom of Scotland was an independent state until May 1, 1707, when the Acts of Union, despite widespread protest across Scotland, resulted in a union with England to create the Kingdom of Great Britain. The continued independence of Scots Law, the Scottish Education System, and the Church of Scotland have all contributed to the continuation of Scottish culture and Scottish national identity.
