As a university, LSE has both many downsides and many upsides but I’d say ultimately it boils down to how involved you get within the university. ____Personally I have enjoyed my time at LSE immensely, as I was lucky enough to try out and find societies I enjoyed throughly. Through those I managed to make really great friends, and I’ve had an active University life which ill look back on fondly.____However there are discernable issues with LSE, and I’m not sure whether they’re specific to this uni alone. Firstly if you don’t happen to find a society you enjoy, which may be the case, ive heard from friends it can be dull, especially if your hall isn’t good with arranging events. Something about LSE is inherently not great in generating a vibrant atmosphere unless you are proactive about it.____Additionally personally, I think it’s easy to get sucked into the corporate/job searching abyss, which honestly detracts from the university experience a fair bit. Especially if that’s all your peers prioritize, it’s hard to not follow suit, which is unfortunate.____Overall I’d say LSE can be a great experience, but it’s up to how you utilize your opportunity there.
