Unquestionable Ranking Of The 10 Best Party Schools In The Nation

1. University of Wisconsin


It didn’t grab the #1 spot because of tangible facts; it’s the intangibles that helped Wisconsin earn its keep. It’s all about the students and the mindset that, despite their shortcomings, they’re still going to go out more, drink more, and rage more than any other school in the country. Go visit Madison for a week, and you’ll see what I’m saying. It’s chaos.

You’ll notice I said “week” and not just “weekend.” Why? That wouldn’t do the students justice, because Tuesday night is the third biggest night to go out in Madison, behind Thursday and Friday. Saturday would trump Tuesday, but Fall gamedays really mess up the average on that one. Most students are passed out before the game even starts, and, considering almost all of Wisconsin’s home games start at 11 o’clock, that’s really saying something.

I’ve been told that Wisconsin’s student culture is kind of like Greek life as a whole: from the outside looking in, you can’t understand it (Why are all the students telling each other to “eat shit” and “fuck themselves” and then clapping afterwards?), and from the inside looking out, you can’t explain it.

    WVU deserves the #2 spot just based on the fact that Morgantown drinks 1% of all Anheuser-Busch products.

    Meh. But it’s what I would expect from a UF grad who probably only thinks that the top ten can be fully of state schools. PSU is overrated, hasn’t been that great in awhile.

      PSU is overrated based on what? I think I speak for everyone in happy valley when I say you have to black out drunk to have any kind of fun

        If you have to black out to have fun, it is probably because its not fun.

        Rules of a psu comment 1) use some kind of nickname for your school like happy Valley etc., or mention an event that has a nickname like thon etc. 2) put your foot in your mouth by saying something moronic…… See above comment for example

      If you weren’t such a goddamn alcoholic maybe you would know how punctuation works.

      Going to class drunk, when you could just not do that – and drink more. NF.

    Appreciate the cheekiness of the column title, but don’t make it so obvious that this is a troll-job. Iowa State making this list over the University of Iowa is a complete joke.

    RIP Veishea. President Leath is truly an ass for getting rid of the most important week of the year to local businesses, clubs, alumni, and the entire Iowa State community.

      You guys party one weekend out of the year and managed to somehow destroy your already pathetic excuse for a college town and kill a kid. Good riddance Veishea.

        Kill a kid? You’re clearly misinformed. A PIKE tried to catch a light post as it was pushed over. He took that light post to the dome instead and got knocked out. He was fine. Now shut your dick holster.

        Are you serious when you say that is what happened? A good friend of mine almost died during this incident, and you say he was trying to “catch” a light post? You sir, are either mentally incompetent, a gdi, or a highschooler I don’t know which one you prefer.

    Attending UW, you need to drink a Lake Mendota amount of booze to make some of these women look attractive.

        Just look at the women who reside in our Tri-Delt and Chi O houses, it’s like if the Creature from the Black Lagoon had all daughters.

        Every school has its trollish looking women. Don’t judge the entire talent pool by the inbred farmhands

      That’s why Bill O’Reily actually put a reporter on campus to analyze the fact that we have the “sexiest student body”?

    As a West Virginia native, and frequent visit to Morgantown I’ll say this, St Pattys day and gamedays there are two of the most magical things.
