What the the TOP party schools in the US??

Laura, you are not even a Sophomore and you ask such deep questions! LOL Wisconsin-Madison, Colorado-Boulder and Illinois-Urbana Champaign are known for being party schools.

But then again, MIT is also know for being a party school, so you never can tell. The fact is, even schools that are known to be serious have a party scene. Afterall, anytime you have thousands of 18-23 year olds concentrated in one area, the potential for a party is great.

Thanks. I was just wondering what they were. My friend and I were arguing over one of the tops in 2001, where she would like to go. But thanks anyways.

There are really two kinds of party schools: good schools that also have a heavy party scene (Wisconsin, Colorado, etc...), and then there are schools that are better known for their partying than for their academics (Arizona State, Northern Illinois, etc...)

Which kind are you looking for?

As Tosg said, there are very good schools that have heavy party scenes (ie. Wisconsin, Lehigh, Vanderbilt, Tulane, etc.)
And then there are, well, just plain party schools (AZ State, LSU, Chico)

I don't want a party school, I'm not looking for one, I'm trying to avoid one.

Why,you just wanna have 4 years of non stop bore?

Actually, I dont want one either, but virtually every school in the nation is going to be a "party school."

In my mind warm weather and beautiful people tend to make up the biggest party schools. UCSB, SDSU, U of Arizona and ASU dominate all, so avoid them. But of course Chico is ridiculous too! When I think of dartmouth I think of alcoholics.
