Where’s the College Party ?
MDC hopes the proud parents are smiling reading this one .
Perhaps right now in Morgantown, West Virginia, they are raising a glass, or rather a mug, to celebrate their No. 1 ranking from the Princeton Review.
Not as the best university for academics or athletics, but for being named the best party school in the United States.
“The schools on this list are mostly large, public universities with strong academic and research profiles, as well as highly successful athletic programs,” West Virginia said in a news release. “But in the big picture, clearly this list has no real credibility.”
West Virginia also topped the “Lots of Beer” list while Providence College was No.1 for “Lots of Hard Liquor.”
Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, led the “Stone Cold Sober” list.
“Schools on the ‘Party Schools’ list are those at which surveyed students’ answers indicated a combination of: low personal daily study hours (outside of class), high usages of alcohol and drugs on campus and high popularity on campus for frats/sororities,” the Princeton Review said on its website.
Here is the full list of the top 20 party schools:
1) West Virginia University
