The best part is that it is really fun. The worst part is that it is so easy to get caught up in the social scene. If you can't stand up and tell others that you don't feel like going out some night then you will have a tough time in college.
The most awesome part is definitely the variety of people that you get to meet - students from all over the world, literally! It's really cool to meet all of the great academics and to experience their views, especially the overseas students, who bring their culture with them.
However, Fridays are definitely the worst part. Those that do drink, tend to do so on Thursday nights, so Friday mornings tend to be very... sober, if you pardon the pun.
I would say the best parts of the social scene is the opportunity to meet a diverse set of individuals. The worst part of this scene would be that people get into the wrong crowd and really mess their life up.
