- party in the USA August 4
Every year, the Princeton Review polls 130,000 college students, asking them to weigh in on everything from the quality of their professors to the beauty of their campus.
But for all the variety of their findings, one category always generates the most attention: the biggest party school. This year, that dubious honor goes to New York's Syracuse University, which supplants 2013's list-topper, the University of Iowa. (Don't take it too hard, Hawkeyes; you're still at number two.)
"We are disappointed with the Princeton Review ranking, which is based on a two-year-old survey of a very small portion of our student body," said Syracuse University in a formal statement. "We do not aspire to be a party school."
By contrast, America's most sober campus is Utah's Brigham Young University — a title that the school, given its affiliation with the Church of Latter-Day Saints, is unlikely to lose anytime soon.- -
