Princeton Review's Top Party Colleges for 2010

The category that seems to receive the biggest press in the Princeton Review's annual ranking of colleges, is the ranking for the top party schools. Here the Princeton Review ranks the top 20 party schools based on responses to a student survey that was completed by 122,000 college students nationwide.

Here are this year's Top 20 Party Schools.

  1. Penn State University
  2. University of Florida
  3. University of Mississippi
  4. University of Georgia
  5. Ohio University
  6. West Virginia University
  7. University of Texas
  8. University of Wisconsin
  9. Florida State University
  10. University of California-Santa Barbara
  11. University of Colorado
  12. University of Iowa
  13. Union College
  14. Indiana University
  15. DePauw University
  16. University of Tennessee
  17. Sewanee: The University of the South
  18. University of North Dakota
  19. Tulane University
  20. Arizona State University

Last year, University of Florida was ranked as the nation's top party school. While the #1 party school seems to change every year, there are certainly schools that are traditionally included in the rankings year after year. Some schools listed in the rankings frown upon the fact that their college is labeled as a "party school", as it seems to overshadow what the school has to offer academically, thanks to the buzz created by party school rankings.
