What College Has Been Named the Top Party School in the US?

Pop another keg in Athens, Ohio because Ohio University has been named the top party school in the nation by a student survey in the Princeton Review’s annual ‘Best Colleges’ edition.

Ohio University has made the best party school list 12 times since 1997, but this marks the first time it ranked number one.

The University of Georgia, which topped the list last year, placed second, while the University of Mississippi, University of Iowa and University of California, Santa Barbara rounded out the top five.

Needlessly to say, Ohio University’s  administration wasn’t so thrilled with the the big honor.

“We take seriously our responsibility to help our students succeed in all facets of their experience, including addressing high-risk behavior,” Dean of Students Ryan Lombardi said in a statement. “We are disappointed in the party school ranking as it is not indicative of the overall experience of Ohio students and does not match the data we have collected.”
