Default Looking for a good P&S

Howdy! Im a college student looking for a camera that is easy to carry around on campus but also takes good quality photos. I can be taking pictures anywhere from the third deck of a football stadium to hanging out with friends at night. I do not have much experience in photography but a few manual settings would be nice to have. Im hoping to go abroad in a year or two so a geotagging feature would be really cool but is not necessary. I have recently taken a look at the sony hx5v but with my lack of experience Im not sure if its actually a good camera or not. Any suggestions that you can give me would be greatly appreciated!

As an HX5V owner, I can tell you that I am not all that pleased with it. You can see why by reading posts here and at dpreview. It is however not a bad camera and it is certainly easy to use.
Disclaimer: I take photos of life rather than live to take photos and my opinions of cameras are reflected accordingly.
