U in the USA unearthed a long and very detailed podcast from 2009 about life at one of America’s top party schools. This American Life visits Penn State on a typical weekend to find out what the students are doing, and to explore the drinking culture at a school famous for its alcohol consumption. It’s not a pretty picture, to be honest, and particularly for an international student it may be shocking to hear some of the things that go on. But if you’re not into it, just remember, it’s not like this at every school, and it’s not like this for every student.
