Would love a discussion, and hopefully current and past LSE students could participate in the conversation! I appreciate ALL answers!

No, it's f*cking amazing. The tuns and the George (main pubs on campus) are usually busy and frequently packed until closing times. Most societies put on decent events.

Personality, I find the union night in 'venue' to be really crap. It's like a propaganda night but with terrible noughties pop instead of indie. It's weirdly popular though and I've seen UCL students whenever I've been.

Outside of campus, I generally go properly out 3 times a week with mates from halls/societies/other unis around central/East London. Sometimes drink, sometimes...other things. Always fun.

The only people who I *know* in real life who claim that the LSE social experience is rubbish haven't made an effort for whatever reason.

Within a couple of weeks of term, in 3 of my classes we had whatsapp groups set up for people to share ideas/info about the lessons and I've organised/been to quite a few nights out based on that.

If you get involved in societies (I defy you not to find at least two or three societies that interest you!) official soc nights out are semi regular and beyond that you'll make friends within that society for 'regular' social activities.

Even if none of your immediate neighbours are sociable you're still in a hall with hundreds of other people. L
