No, if you want an interesting university experience then go to Canada

How do you possibly propose to accurately and definitively measure something as individual as 'fun'?

Fun is what you as an individual makes it. The opportunities to meet people and do things are broadly the same everywhere, the only difference is you and your attitude.

Depends, if you find drinking fun then it'll be the opposite, and it also depends on the university as some will obviously be more boring than others.

I, on the contrary, think that US universities are much more boring than British.

UK unis are cheaper. From what I've been internetting, Americans pay out the @5$ for their education more than Western Europe. Some overseas students were in my department I assume for similar reasons.

American uni is like a party, but if you go for the party lifesyle you may as well skip uni for a job and local venues. I had to stay in for my degree, not much partying or sports clubbing for me.

That's a direct function of the drinking age being 21.

They have house parties because they can't go out (without fake IDs). The student union in the States is often like a Shopping Centre's fast food hall.

The American students I know on exchange love it here. I know an English guy who went to the States at enormous expense and absolutely hates it, and he's trying to summon up the courage to tell his parents that he wants to come home.

You can't really measure fun because the experience becomes what you make of it. If you enjoy going out and not remembering the night before and that's fun to you then no, UK uni's aren't boring compared to U.S ones. Same as if you enjoy sitting in the library all day and not talking to anyone ever(maybe a bit too anti social, but just an extreme example) and that's fun to you, then no, UK uni's aren't boring compared to U.S ones.

I think one thing that might make a difference though is the sorts of people you'll meet. Americans are just.. Different to us. They're more "out there" (making generalisations here and this definitely isn't a bad thing). So I think maybe that might make it seem as though uni life is better?
