The Top 25 Party Colleges Of The Day

Hot off the presses of Newsweek and The Daily Beast

Their methodology:
"To compile the list of the best schools in the nation at which to party down, we limited the pool of colleges to those that were considered “best-fit” for students interested in attending a “big-time party school” according to CollegeView. From there, we considered the number of on-campus arrests and per-student disciplinary actions for drugs and alcohol that occurred in 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Bonus points were given to campuses that landed on Princeton Review’s most recent rating of the top party schools and top beer-drinking campuses."

25. Rollins
24. Arizona State
23. Plymouth State
22. Maryland
21. Georgia
20. Dayton
19. Lehigh
18. California (at Santa Barbara)
17. Texas
16. U of The South
15. Mississippi
14. Iowa
13. Florida State
12. DePauw
10. Indiana
9. Florida
8. Colgate
7. Wisconsin
6. New Hampshire
5. Union
4. Ohio
3. Colorado
2. Penn State
1. West Virginia

Your school didn't crack the list? Keep at it!


  1. I'm a little disappointed that Arizona didn't make the list. I learned to drink like a boss when I was in college. RECOUNT!! RECOUNT!! RECOUNT!!

  2. 16. U of The South

    The entire South has one university, and it's in Tennessee? Is that really even the south? I always thought of it as a state I drove through on my way TO the south.

  3. Kinda creepy that Penn State is #2.

  4. I work at the #25 school, which school fell from #10 last year. Good and bad, bc it's a small school, but the rich kids are falling down on the party-school job. However, if anyone has a right to be in the top 5, it's Penn State. They have a lot to try to forget.

  5. I'm so sad.... my alma mater didn't make it either. :( Damn, we've slipped.
