Syracuse ranked top party school in the U.S.


While you’re tailgating and heading to killer frat parties this fall, think about this: Your school has nothing on Syracuse University. The Princeton Review released its annual rankings and the Orange Men reign supreme this year, with the University of Iowa, UC Santa Barbara, West Virginia University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign rounding out the top five. Renown for its yearly lists of various categories, the highly anticipated Princeton Review determined that Syracuse students get their party on more than other colleges and universities after taking a survey of 130,000 students at 379 schools.

The organization uses this data to rank more than who parties the most. The Princeton Review compiles lists on a wide range of categories, from academics to student life to financial aid. Below are some other findings from this year’s survey.
