LSE is not a school for the sports-type. It's a very academic school, and LSE students tend to be very active in politics, both on and off campus. It's a school for activists, really. There are certainly a wealth of sport opportunities, but these are generally outweighed by the wealth of student societies devoted to international relations, the UN, global development issues, et al. World leaders are constantly dropping by, and there are numerous lectures and speeches given by major academics. Add to that London nightlife, and you will have a blast - but there's not a huge campus environment (outside Houghton Street). LSE is an urban university.

Reality is, you DO have to study quite a bit if you care about your marks, however, this dose not mean one cannot experience lal that london nite life has to offer. Local students will always be a help. If you like a pint every so often (and in london it is quite often) the LSE bar is fantastic as is the bar in high holborn apartments. As far as nite clubs are concerned, pick up a Timeout London. It is the Londerners BIBLE to going out at nite. Also, do you best to see all that the city has to offer. The guide 'London A to Z' should be a big help

Kahn's, great curry place and well priced. A.K.A. swish bar but user friendly. Mezzo, really swish bar with live bands. Concession tickets at Royal National Theatre. Greenwich Market or Spittalfields are more manageable than Portobello and just as fun. Blackfriar's Pub, albeit a suits place, is loaded with atmosphere as well as The Bank of England pub. YO! Sushi's conveyor belt action is a great novelty. Cabinet War Rooms and Westminster were worth it. Cheap and tasty high tea- the crypt under St. Paul's. Posh high tea- Harrod's.

Only stayed for the 3 week summer course. Not much exposure to real student life at LSE as all students were mostly from outside UK and there only for the summer program.

Well. I do not have a very active social life as the studies are a big part of the day here in LSE although I attend the popular lectures that happen in the LSE Campus.

I don't remember! But Tate Gallery was very interesting, and there are many good clubs in London, if you like Drum'n'Bass and more exotic music.

London's nightlife is simply great. The Turkish take away bar at Totenham Court Road serves great food. SoHo neighbourhood is thrilling.
