What Makes A School A Party School?

It is a simple answer. If your school has a lot of parties that are known by many, you are considered a party school.


Prep Scholar shared that,

"A party school has a very active on-campus party scene. In other words, there are frequent and numerous parties, which are usually well attended and act as popular social events for students. Universities that are described as party schools generally have high rates of student drinking and drug use as well as a large number of fraternities and sororities."

These are the top five party schools in the country.

  1. UC Santa Barbara - Santa Barbara, CA
  2. Tulane University - New Orleans, LA
  3. Florida State University - Tallahassee, FL
  4. The University of Alabama—Tuscaloosa -Tuscaloosa, AL
  5. Howard University - Washington, DC
  6. University of Wisconsin—Madison - Madison, WI
  7. University of Georgia - Athens, GA
  8. Syracuse University - Syracuse, NY
  9. University of Southern California - Los Angeles, CA
  10. University of Illinois--Champaign Urbana -  Urbana-Champaign, IL

With that definition, I bet you can think of a bunch of party schools, even within the state of Michigan.
