I know this is a stupid question lol, but im watchin road trip, and uni (college) there looks so fun, is it like this in real life. I know you got studying, but the social stuff in these films looks great, is this just for the film? Or what its like in America? or what?
Thanks

I'd say a lot of people on my campus party hard on the weekends, like drinking too much, because they're trying to deal with the stress from how hard they work. I don't really consider a lot of drinking to be fun.

If by 'films' you mean 'Scream 2', then yes.

Ditto on having watched road trip! I really doubt uni's like in films cause American high school is nothing like that unless most of the students are in their early to late 20s.

my flatmates in hall mainly stay in every night cos everyone is short of money and we only go out like once a week. Usually we watch drama/comedy episodes. Not much alcohol going unlike the freshers' week - i know, it sounds really sad but u've got no money, what else can u do


I was kind of expecting uni life would what american pie / old school be like

Can't you just stay in and throw a party? Or stay in and do some of your hobbies that you brought along from home with you that doesn't require extra money or any drink?

Uni is more akin to school than to its cheesy Hollywood image. I guess I expected a bit more to the students [freshers mainly] than just getting drunk and gossiping....

But yeah, sometimes it will feel like an amazing experience, and sometimes you will feel overwhelmed by the mundanity of it all.
