Princeton Review Releases 2018's Top 20 Party Schools


Every single year, Princeton Review releases their rankings of the top 384 colleges/universities in America. Along with that list, they rank the top 20 party schools in America:

Princeton Review-Based on student ratings concerning the use of alcohol and drugs at their school, the number of hours they study each day outside of class time, and the popularity of fraternities/sororities at their school.

Decent formula.

Here are the top 10:

1. University of Deleware

2. West Virginia

3. Tulane University

4. Syracuse University

5. Bucknell University

6. Lehigh University

Checks out:

7. UC Santa Barbara

8. University of Wisconsin

9. Colgate University

Gonna have to disagree with that one.

10. University of Rhode Island

If the likes of Colgate University are beating out Arizona State, who somehow didn’t make the top 10, the validity of the list drops significantly in my book.

Here are 11-20:

11. University of Alabama

12. University of Vermont

13. Providence College

Providence does party hard. They have various themed drinking events throughout the year, such as a drinking-themed Royal Rumble, where “50 people are drinking in a circle and you have to drink a beer in a certain amount of time and it goes until 1 persons left” (that is a quote from a SOURCE, who may or may not be my friend who went to Providence).

Although, Providence is way too high. Dorms are single-gendered and a male can’t be in a female dorm after 12 or 1 AM. That alone drops them down 50-100 spots.

14. Wake Forest University

15. Union College

Arizona State? Penn State? Ole Miss? LSU?

16. University of Maine


17. University of Illinois

18. University of Florida

19. Florida State University

20. Sonoma State University

Crazy list.

Here are the top 5 stone cold sober schools:

1. BYU


2. College of the Ozarks

Isn’t that a Netflix show?

3. Wheaton College (Ill.)

4. Calvin College

5. Air Force
