Fraternity life is good, as long as you stay away from houses on Elm Street, with the exception of DU, DK, and CROW. There are a few good sororities in town, for the most part, most sorority girls enjoy blowing lines of coke off of each others vagina's.
Potsdam is a great place to make bad decisions with huge chicks and make good decisions with mediocre chicks. Girls here get a three point curve, ie. a 3 point fat chick is rated at 6 points at Potsdam. Girls 7 and above do not exist. The cold air and high latitude will impair your judgment.
Overall, Potsdam is a great place to go unless you enjoy decent weather and good looking woman.
