The Laurinburg Area Campaign

The Laurinburg Area Campaign for St. Andrews is about a community and county-wide partnership that began with the origins of Flora Mcdonald College and Presbyterian Junior College dating back to 1896.  It is a special time each year when individuals, businesses, local organizations, and alumni of the school contribute to the overall prosperity of a major economic engine of Scotland County.  Boasting an annual payroll of $8,004,512 and equaling an overall economic impact of some $56 million annually, St. Andrews brings hundreds of students and employees and thousands of visitors to the community, creating jobs, awareness, and opportunity for the region.

All gifts to this fund are unrestricted gifts.

The Equestrian Program

St. Andrews University provides and supports horses for the Hunter Seat Team, the Western Team, the Dressage Team, the Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, the Pre-Vet Program, and the Lesson Program for all disciplines.  Our horses are the heart of our program and a huge part of our student’s success academically and competitively.   Horse Care is one of our top priorities, both for our St. Andrews horses as well as for teaching our students all that is involved in keeping horses healthy, sound, fit, and happy,  From routine vaccinations and Coggins Tests, to veterinary and chiropractic visits, to shoes, to grain and hay  (A LOT OF HAY), to equipment including halters, lead ropes, fly sheets, fly masks, fly spray, winter blankets, boots and polo wraps, saddles, saddle pads, to bits and bridles.  The needs are endless.

The Scottish Heritage Center

The Scottish Heritage Center was created in 1989 to celebrate and preserve the Scottish and Presbyterian roots of St. Andrews University and the region in which it is located – which was at one time the largest settlement of Highland Scots in North America.  The Center contains a large collection of old and rare books and artifacts as well as current scholarship relating to Scotland and Scots in the Carolinas and provides historical interpretation and research assistance for hundreds of visitors each year.  The Center is also home to the SAU Pipe Band and headquarters for the Scotland County Highland Games.

Rooney Coffman Science Endowment 

Rooney Coffman ’68 has been a fixture at St. Andrews for over four decades. Every St. Andrews science student has been touched by his unflagging support for science courses, by his concern for his students, by his meticulous care of the science facilities and equipment, his dedication to training his student assistant “elves,” and by his can-do attitude and unfailing good cheer.

In recognition of Rooney’s dedicated service to St. Andrews, the Science Advisory Group proposed, and the University is proud to name the Science Sustaining Fund in his honor.
The Science Sustaining Fund will be used to support the Science Program at St. Andrews by:

  • Supporting Student Research Activities with travel funds and equipment support
  • Reagent and specialized equipment support
    Matching Funds for Grants.
  • Your support of science is vital to St. Andrews

Your donation will help support current student and faculty research and enrich the science curriculum.
