Some people go to college for one reason: to party. Actually, who am I kidding? Everyone wants to party in college!
The Princeton Review ranked the country's top "party" colleges and universities based on a survey of 130,000 students from 379 schools. Shockingly, Syracuse University was listed at No. 1.
Though students may be thrilled and honored to hear that their school is the place to be for an exceptional time, Syracuse officials think otherwise, releasing the statement:
“We do not aspire to be a party school. With new leadership, we are very focused on enhancing the student experience, both academically and socially. Students, parents, faculty and the full Syracuse University community should expect to see important and positive changes in the year ahead that will improve and enhance the student environment in every aspect.”internationally as the best in their fields."
Taking the No. 2 spot is the University of Iowa, followed by UC Santa Barbara, West Virginia University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Another shocker: infamous party school, Arizona Sate University, didn’t make the top 20 this year.
