Univ. Of Oregon Among Nation’s Top Party Schools
(CBS Seattle) — The Princeton Review has released its annual list of the country’s best party schools and the University of Oregon made it into the top 20, according to the Associated Press.
The University of Iowa got the distinction of being the nation’s top party school, a title University officials aren’t celebrating since they have been working to curb binge drinking on campus in recent years, reports the Associated Press. The school was ranked number two last year. Other top party schools this year include University of Texas at Austin, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Mississippi and Penn State University all of which frequent the infamous list. Oregon made its debut this year at number 20.
Schools are ranked based on a nationwide survey of 126,000 students; about 300 students per campus are asked a series of 80 questions.
On the other end of the spectrum, Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah was dubbed the most “stone-cold sober” school in the country, followed by Wheaton College in Illinois and College of the Ozarks in Missouri.
No schools in Washington made either list.
