Penn State returns, Lehigh added to top 10 ‘party school’ rankings
Party like its 2009.
Penn State was rated once again as a top 10 party school in the United States.
The Princeton Review’s annual rankings, published Monday in the 2014 edition of ”The Best 378 Colleges” book, placed the Nittany Lions at No. 9. An improvement (demotion?) from No. 11 in 2012.
In the 2009 list, the Central, Pa.-college was ranked the No. 1 drinking school in the country.
The rankings, typically ignored by the educational institutions, are based on surveys of 333 students per college campus. Each student is asked 80 questions, which are then used in a comparison study.
Bethlehem’s Lehigh University came in at one spot behind Penn
State at No. 10.
University of Iowa came in at No. 1, followed by the University of California, Santa Barbara; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; West Virginia University and Syracuse University.
Among the sober-schools list, Brigham Young University scored the highest.
