Syracuse University might be the nation's top party school, but two Pennsylvania schools, Lehigh and Penn State Universities, are also in the top ten.
The rankings were revealed Monday by The Princeton Review.
"We are disappointed with the Princeton Review ranking," Syracuse said in a statement while citing a "long-established reputation for academic excellence with programs that are recognized nationally and internationally as the best in their fields. We do not aspire to be a party school."
The University of Iowa (2013's winner), the University of California-Santa Barbara, West Virginia University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign rounded out the top 5 party schools.
Bethlehem's Lehigh University ranked number 6. Penn State followed at number 7.
The rankings were based on a nationwide survey of 130,000 students. An average of 343 students per campus were asked 80 questions about their schools and themselves during the 2013-14 and/or previous two school years.
In a separate survey, Brigham Young University, Wheaton College and the United States Military Academy (West Point) ranked as the Top 3 Stone-Cold Sober Schools.
The Princeton Review, which has no affiliation with Princeton University, is a test preparation and college admission services company with headquarters in Framingham, Massachusetts.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
