University of Wisconsin Nation’s Top Party School…Again
Officials aren't too happy with the results
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is once again the nation’s top party school, the last time it received the vote was back in 2005.
The ranking, announced Monday, comes from the Princeton Review, a New York-based tutoring and test prep company that surveys thousands of students and rates colleges in numerous categories every year.
Officials with the university are not pleased with the ranking, a statement to The Associated Press made no mention of the ranking, instead calling alcohol use on campus a “pressing public health concern,” that hurts academic achievement and makes schools less safe.
Officials also noted that new students do go through mandatory programs to educate them about the dangers of alcohol.
West Virginia came in second, followed by the University of Illinois, which claimed the top spot last year.
Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, was the most sober school in the country for the 19th straight year. Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, has the best financial aid.
