Playboy magazine announced its list of Top 10 Party Schools, and the University of Wisconsin is ranked 2nd. Last year the UW ranked 5th on the list.
Playboy’s 2013 Top 10 Party Schools list:
1. West Virginia University
2. University of Wisconsin
3. University of Colorado
4. University of Southern California
5. Florida State University
6. University of Texas
7. Louisiana State University
8. University of Georgia
9. Arizona State University
10. University of Maryland
Playboy says its editors compile the list using date from the National Center for Education Statistics, the NCAA, and the US Economic Census. They also use feedback from social media.
The UW has been featured on similar top ten lists in the past. Administrators at the school have long expressed concern over the culture of binge drinking on campus, while students often see it as a source of pride.
