The term “Party School” is used to refer to a college or university that has a reputation for heavy alcohol and drug use or a general culture of licentiousness. The magazine Playboy has published a list of party schools in 1987, 2002, 2006, and every year since 2009. Playboy ranked America’s best party schools by Sex, Nightlife, Sports, and UVA came out on top.
Here, below is the list of Playboy’s Top 10 Party Schools of 2018.
10. University Of Michigan
University Of Michigan is a public research university in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Students at University of Michigan are known for throwing parties.
Oh, 'the Michigan difference.' The haughty catchphrase works because it’s true: Wolverines study hard and party harder," Playboy wrote. "At 'the Pit,' a shared backyard between frat houses and an epicenter for Saturday-morning tailgating, students get advanced degrees in Wolverine superiority, still going strong almost 20 years after its last football championship.
House parties abound in Ann Arbor; if one gets shut down, students roll the kegs to the party down the street. Win or lose, Michiganders still booze.
9. University Of Mississippi
Ole Miss is the quintessential southern university, with beautiful classic buildings and a campus steeped in tradition. Football Saturdays here are a religious experience, and tailgating before a game in the Grove is one of the coolest college football experiences one can have. The Grove is populated with oak, elm and magnolia trees, and tents are added on fall Saturdays. Notable buildings include the Lyceum, which is the oldest building on campus (1848). It is pictured on the school’s official crest. Another interesting building, and piece of history, is the School of Medicine, which was used as a Civil War hospital for both Union and Confederate soldiers.
