University Of Wisconsin Named Top Party School In The Country
To quote a saying "No one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they got plenty of sleep." For one college up the road, that could be their motto.
The Princeton Review comes out with a yearly list of the best schools in the country, including the best party schools. For 2017, the University of Wisconsin was named to the top spot. The last time they received that ranking was back in 2006.
How does the publication come up with that determination? Here is what they say on their website:
"Schools on the "Party Schools" list are those at which surveyed students' answers indicated a combination of low personal daily study hours (outside of class), high usages of alcohol and drugs on campus and high popularity on campus for frats/sororities."
When the announcement was made, the University made a statement:
"Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have an incredible sense of pride in this institution and great camaraderie with their fellow Badgers that contributes to making our university an enjoyable place to attend school. But this is only half of the story. UW-Madison is also an exceptional place to learn, conduct research and serve our community. We rank among the world’s top 25 universities, in the top five in research expenditures and are second in the nation in producing Peace Corps volunteers.
