Well, the Netherlands was rich in "social experiences" for me. At the Hague University of Applied Sciences -it is not a real uni, "of applied sciences" is not a protected term in dutch or most european systems oh and so is the term "bachelor of", it is actually more something in between a high school, thus hogeschool in its original dutch name/form, and a community college. However, well the dutch are used to turning a bad situation into a "better" one, for themselves, thus they have adapted themselves to the floods of foreigners streaming into the country, mainly through the gates of education institutions -which need the cash from foreigners, as it forms an integral part in their business models, the dutch do not pay anything- and from those streaming floods then the economy there starts rollin', i.e. the housing, cafes, shops, nightlife, everywhere are tons and tons of cheap/shitty dutch businesses aimed at taking your money. The dutch have their own places, but they are unattractive to the foreigner, because there are only dutch people and they play really weird dutch music. Also, dutch people really either don't have to pay for entry or they get some off the prices you are charged, regardless. Travel, on the other hand, of course works pretty well, i.e. good infrastructure, however, of course you have to pay an unreasonably amount of money, before you can reach dutch borders and it gets better -again totally free for the dutch. Sports was so lala, the Haagse Hogeschool, has an underground sports hall, where rarely somebody goes, but recently the student associations -which are middle-man, working together with other local businesses- have tried to cater that need more regularly, but it is largely ignored by the microcosm of the Hogeschool.

The student bar (El Soos) was the place to be on a weekly basis (for cheap drinks). Although there were much better places for nightlife, the student bar provided the opportunity to regularly interact with the other exchange students and the local Dutch students. Plaza! in Schevengingen was 1 block from our house and so was nice and convenient, good music. Crazy Pianos, good for live music and a dance. One place not to be missed is Six Flags Holland, for a good fun day out....Cremers is a good spot for chilling out and relazing, as is Buddha Bar (nice comfortable pillows).

The Havana Bar is a perennial student favourite thanks to the cheap drinks. Thursday night is the best and this is the same for most locations in the Hague as this is 'student night' and there is no cover charge. Other popular haunts include Club Silly Symphonies and El Sous.

My favourite cafe is situated in the center of The Hague and is called "Deluca".We often go there with many people to enjoy good coffee and amazing atmosphere. My preferable night spot is the student bar arranged and opened by the students.I like it there because there are only our students,we can communicate there a lot and forget about the difficulties in school.

I´d siad that the best pub in The Hague is located in Pipestraat, in the centrum, and its name is De Paap. It is a place where you can enjoy the life music performance. Also I´d recommend De Paters a little pub close the main square. A few important events are the North Sea Jazz Festival, and the Queen´s night

I loved it! My recommendations: do not miss coffee or snacks at the university caffee "Siezo"; Thursday is student night which means that students can get into clubs for free! For Nightlife - "El Soos", "Paard", "Silly's", "onefour"!, "Havana", "Fiddlers" and many more :)
