Party Schools in Georgia
Tuesday, August 17, 2004
The Princeton Review's annual unofficial rankings of colleges are out, and there's some bad news for Georgia.
Several schools here got some unwelcome attention for negative aspects.
The University of Georgia is the eighth-ranked party school, and a shocking Number Two for students who said in surveys that they almost never study.
Georgia Tech was ranked Number One for students who said class discussions were rare, and Number 15 for campuses that are small or unsightly. Tech also came in Number 16 for "least happy students."
Morehouse College was ranked third for bad libraries, beaten by Spelman College, which came in first.
There was some good news for other campuses. Emory University was ranked 13th in "best college library," and 19th in "toughest to get into."
Mercer University was named Number 20 for "best bargain" private colleges. Also in Macon, Wesleyan College was noted for having a low number of students who use liquor or beer, and was listed Number 20 of colleges with nice dorms.
