ive never been to Ann Arbor, but ive been to Tally and Gainsville. and Tally wins that easy. Gainsville was so stuck up it seemed like. While Tally was more laid back and fun.

I had fun in Gainsville to, meet a dolphins fan that was pissed cause i was wearing a Derrick Thomas Chiefs jersey. also got drunk and met new people, but Tally is just so different personality wise, i liked it better.

Iv'e only personally been to Gainesville and Tally and have had a lot of fun at both, but If I really, reallly had to choose, Gainesville would probably get the nod.

Downtown Plattsburgh isn't bad. Not like one of these big schools but it holds its own (I know what everyone is thinking, where the **** is Plattsburgh lol :lol: )!

College Park aint bad, but the best(and anyone who's ever been there can attest) is Tempe, AZ(Arizona St.)...Mill Ave has everything a growin' boy needs, and then some...and then some more ;)

Georgetown is great but Arlington is like a 25-35 crowd...very yuppie and douchy at times. Iota, Dr. Dremos, and Ragtime are alright tho

Purdue. Laffayette, IN. The 21st d-day Walk Of Shame. Place bets with friends on whether you can make it to the bottom of the hill. Near campus is a place called Chauncy Hill, like 9-10 bars on the top of the hill then a Redneck Country line dance bar at the very bottom of the hill. You start at the top, each Bar will give you a Free shot on your b-day, 1 shot, and 1 Beer at each bar, if you make it to the bottom, you have to ride the mechanical bull, if you do that and don't puke you win, I don't know anyone who ever won the bet, but we had fun trying and watching.

Been there on a recruiting trip in highschool, we went to this country dive that was BYOB called FREDS, I think I still have a hat somewhere. Carbondale was a good time, even for a 18 year old. Now that I remember you could get into bars at 18 but "could not drink". Like that ever happened.

Yep, that's where the serious partier who qualifies for in state tuition in Virginia goes.

I hear Radford gets pretty wild, but that's private school territory.

Dude, I graduated from FSU...I lived there for 5 years.

Believe me, it is the general consensus among students that Tallahasse sucks. There are good looking girls at every university. In Tallahassee there is nothing to do in comparison to other college towns (I go to Michigan State now and Ann Arbor is an hour away). Go to "the strip" in Tally and tell me it looks good.

My and my buds went up to Montreal last year Dom. It was good times, obviously the drinking age is only 18 so we took full advantage of that. Also we hit up some nice strip clubs ;)

Went to a bar/restaurant called Calhoun's in Harrisonburg. The place was hopping! We were down there with 10 40 year-old guys mountain biking. It was my buddies 40th and as a goof we had the waitress bring him a cup cake with a candle. Will next thing you know, 200 college kids are signing happy birthday, then yelling chug, chug! He downed his beer, they all cheered! Then they kept buying him beers all night! It took to days to wake him up!:lol:
