American Students in #England

College life – UK universities have more activities to engage you. In the US, you’re pretty much on your own.
Grading/Marking system is different – In the UK, a 70 is very good.
Student housing and size of campus is different. Much more compact.
Traditional English food is fried and greasy.
Can’t find good Mexican food.
Blood pudding wasn’t appealing.
Prices on some items are inflated.
Weather is more severe.
Customer service is not good.
People are cold. Not many smiles or waves. People are nice but not in the same way.
Better public transportation.
