Top party schools: Who needs an education when you can pay thousands upon thousands of dollars to party yourself into oblivion? Apparently a lot of people base their collegiate future upon which school offers the most opportunities to cut loose, though I'm sure potential students aren't running this particular fact past their parents. Unless, of course, their moms and dads are partiers, too, in which case they may have openly recommended places like Ohio University or the University of Georgia. If fun is your major, then these schools are your best option.
The list, which was released by the Princeton Review, gives you a breakdown of the top schools that are known for the wild and wooly ways. If your parental units are majorly concerned about what type of atmosphere you're heading into this fall, perhaps you should keep this article away from their prying eyes, as it might expose your secret plans to consume copious amounts of alcohol in-between classes. And the last thing any of us at WebProNews want is to allow your classes to get in the way of your partying. Heaven forbid.
Below you can find 20 schools that party harder than anyone else out there, which, of course, is something to be proud of when shaping the minds of the younger generation. I know I sound like a cynical ass and a giant douche, but I tend to get a little fussy whenever someone says they're attending a particular college so they can stay drunk the entire time.
Before you start bombarding me with expletive-laden hate mail, please note that my opinions are not based on the schools themselves. They can't help it if their students are notorious partiers. However, high school graduates who make their decisions based solely on the establishment's reputation are the ones I'm shaking my head at. Just to clarify.
