Princeton Review recently released a list documenting the top party colleges for the year of 2013. At the top of the list—to the students’ pride and to the school officials’ chagrin—is West Virginia University. The Princeton Review has been ranking colleges for 21 years and West Virginia University has been in the top 20 list 12 times.

The second university on the list is University of Iowa and the third is Ohio University who was the champion the previous year. Other titles which West Virginia University has won included first place in the “Lots of Beer” category and third place in the “Students Study the Least” category. This may explain how the college managed to seize the title from Ohio University and reign king in the top party school listing.

When students moved into WVU, many police officers cited students for underage drinking and incidents where public displays of intoxication were found. Clearly, the school is trying to lose its party reputation. Spokesperson Becky Lofstead stated that the list had no real credibility and most schools on the party list were large, public universities that excelled in other areas of academia and sports.

The other schools in the 2013 party list, in order, include: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Georgia, University of Florida, UC Santa Barbara, Florida State University, Miami University, and Syracuse University.

The rankings of the party colleges are part of Princeton Review’s 2013 “The Best 377 Colleges” book. The new book edition contains 62 lists that will help future college students best assess the aspects of college life on a campus they are looking into. The lists range from academia, administration, and the social life of a campus. The lists were done through 80 question surveys the company gave out to 122,000 students. Those interested in buying the book can see the new edition out on Tuesday.

Other lists that the Princeton Review compiled included the “Least Beautiful Campus” list, “Students Pack the Stadiums” list, and the “Stone-Cold Sober Schools” list. On the “Stone-Cold Sober” list were: Wheaton College, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Grove City College, West Point, CUNY-Brooklyn College, Wesleyan College, Wellesley College, and Calvin College.

While the lists that Princeton Review let out were fun and games, the careless acts that may be caused by drinking can lead to serious cases of personal injury. If a college student were to drink then drive, a possible car accident may occur. When a person chooses to drive a vehicle, he or she has the responsibility to make sure they are okay to drive. However, there have been some misfortunate cases were DUIs have lead to car accidents.
