UAlbany Has Held This Title Before – Who Is 2016s Top Party School?
In 2004, the Capital Region was at the top of the most prestigious of college lists: Top Party School. 12 years later, did any local colleges make the list? Who took the crown?
Princeton Review publishes an annual guide to picking and preparing for which schools to choose from and have done so since 1993. Student surveys are provided to 143,000 students at 381 colleges across the country. So, you know the results are coming right from students mouth!
Turns out the data is back, has been reviewed and the results are official, so who is the "Top Party School" for 2016? The University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Capital Region did not make the list this year - which, I'm sure parents are happy for and maybe students are, too? Here's the Top 20 as published by the Princeton Review and Huffington post:
- University of Wisconsin-Madison
- West Virginia University
- University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- Lehigh University
- Bucknell University
- University of Iowa
- University of Mississippi
- Syracuse University
- Tulane University
- Colgate University
- University of California―Santa Barbara
- University of Delaware
- University of Rhode Island
- Wake Forest University
- College of Charleston
- University of Maine
- University of Vermont
- University of Florida
- University of Colorado―Boulder
- Florida State University
As mentioned, the Capital Region is no stranger to this list and actually sat at the top in 2004 with the University of Albany. After a number of problems,which included the cancellation and inevitable ending of the schools annual Fountain Day Celebration, they've slipped from the ultimate party list.
