What’s 2018’s Biggest Party School in America? The Answer Is (Big) Easy.

Party Schools

Not that it needs it, but this college has another reason to celebrate.

The Princeton Review has come out with its annual list ranking colleges on everything from academics to political views. That’s all fine and dandy, but we’re concerned with the schools where students most enjoy the social scene, i.e., best party schools.

This year’s (2018) champ is Tulane University, located in New Orleans, a city that knows a thing or two dozen about partying. Last year’s number one, the University of Wisconsin, plunged to fifth, meaning those students really need to shut the books and take advantage of “dollar pitcher” night more often.

2018 Top Party Schools

  1. Tulane University
  2. West Virginia University
  3. Bucknell University
  4. Syracuse University
  5. University of Wisconsin-Madison
  6. University of Delaware
  7. University of Colorado-Boulder
  8. Colgate University
  9. Lehigh University
  10. University of Maine

Noticeable by its absence in the top 10 is The University of Iowa–ranked #6 for 2017 and #2 in 2016–which came in 11th. Fellow Big Ten member Illinois dipped from #1 in 2016 and #3 in 2017 to the 14th-rated party school for the upcoming year.

A total of 382 schools appear in the various rankings, which were created by interviewing 137,000 students, many of whom we’re assuming had to be awakened to take part because, seriously, what college student is ever up before noon?
