    St Andrews University students take part in a foam fight known as Raisin Monday in the Lower College Lawn behind St Salvator's Quadrangle following the Raisin Weekend, an annual tradition where student "parents" inflict tasks on the unfortunate first-years they have adopted as "children" as part of a mentoring scheme. Picture date: Monday October 20, 2014. Raisin Monday is a tradition dating back to the early days of the university when the new student would give senior students one pound of raisins in gratitude for their help in adapting to university life, in exchange for a receipt written in Latin. Failure to produce such a receipt could result in a dousing in the local fountain, today this dousing takes place in the foam of foam fight.Source: Andrew Milligan
