god damn, frat life in the US looks dope as f***. Every weekend must be like one big house party. Why do we have such a poverty uni nightlife system in the UK (i.e. for most unis, only 1 or 2 decent clubs in vicinity of the uni, that, or you go to the crappy nightclub on campus)?!

edit: can y'all see the video below? if not, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieV1HpAfi1k

Because we don't have fraternities, is one reason.

Wow, your powers of deduction are simply astounding.

Because we aren't American and actually have a perfectly acceptable culture of our own.

In America there's the freedom to pick and choose who can be a member of these frat houses. Whereas here, if that was to take place there would be many issues due to how diverse the UK is..

One thing I always notice, is how American guys are far more jacked than British guys.

The UK isn't diverse at all in comparison with America.

I'm not sure the initiation ceremonies such as sucking other people's **** off your thumbs would go down well over here.

On top of that, if you think that American university nightlife is better than U.K university nightlife (on average) then you are severely deluded. It is well known that America hasn't known how to do clubbing since they birthed House music in the 1980s. Now all you've got this sort of ****:

Can you elaborate on your point.

Also, if you're implying the UK is more ethnically diverse than the US, that's not correct.

The US is way more diverse, and tbh in the UK London and Birmingham are the only places with any real diversity.

If that is American University 'life' (picture) then I am extremely glad I belong to a superior culture - and one that isnt based on division and exclusion, racism, misogyny, and many other nasty little distinctions.

PS. Anyone wanting to experience Frat Houses and all other naff aspects of American life, can apply for a degree that includes study abroad to the USA. Personally I can't think of anything more ghastly.

Typical bitter British kid

In England being middle class means owning a *****y terrace house you bought on a mortgage, in America being middle class means buying your kids a Mustang for their 18th.

Because they're dumbed down American versions of an ordinary student house.

College students are adults.

Frat parties are epic,especially if the sorority sisters sneak into one :mmm:
It's weird they don't have the same culture in British universities

Perhaps, on the off chance they haven't been massacred before then.
