I was fortunate enough to participate in a semester abroad program with a university in England. The partying during my three months over there was more fun than the rest of the time I spent at Penn State (and yes, I did graduate).
The fact that there was a pub on campus, directly across from the dorms, with discounted beer and organized parties every night during orientation week was foreshadowing of good times. It was all in good fun though, and to the best of my knowledge no property was damaged, and no one got hurt. Maybe severely hung over on occasion, but not hurt.
Evidently I didn't cause too much strife either, as I was one of the first two students from Penn State to go over to this school, and the program continued after we left. Actually, now that I think about it, they did threaten to throw me out of the dorms because I kept my bike inside. However, the program administrator felt that the supervisor in question was over-reacting, and they were really embarrassed and apologetic.
