Actually LSE was ranked #1 in some ranking of best social life for students!http://www.lboro.ac.uk/prospectus/achievements/tables.html
"Oxford and Cambridge may regularly top the official university academic league tables but the London School of Economics (LSE) offers its students the best and most varied local entertainment
, according to a table published today. The table, compiled by internet search engine Yell.com, ranks Britain's top 20 universities according to the number of 'social' services they offer students
, instead of looking at more conventional measures such as quality of teaching, student-staff ratios and graduate prospects. The search engine based its findings on its database of businesses, shops and services to find the number of pubs, off-licences, nightclubs, discos, fancy dress hire shops, pizza delivery and takeaway outlets within each university town or city. From its cramped premises in Central London, LSE boasts a nightclub for every 93 students.
And Glasgow is the place to be if you need an outfit for a fresher's week fancy dress party, the table shows. Nottingham is best for a beer, getting top marks for the most pubs. And students at King's College, London, have the best all-round night out with plenty of clubs as well as takeaways to round off the evening."
