Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Well.. now I'm torn..if the future leaders of the Free World studying in universities today are the best we can hope for.. no wonder we're in such trouble.. guess this explains Tony Blair and George Bush..

    British University Students spend three times more money on drink than they do on books according to a Royal Bank of Scotland survey...

    and in the US...The American College Health Association finds that one in ten US collegians is diagnosed with a mental illness.. 38% of college students suffer from some form of recognized mental incapacity far higher than the 10% average for the general population...

    Gawd help us all...
     
  2. Wish i had gone to University :(
     
  3. I did, :D :D

    I think standards are slipping if they are only spending 3 times as much these days. I have an enduring memory of a friend selling his books towards the end of the second term so he could afford to come out to a party. :D
