    The Princeton Review has released its list of the top 10 party schools in America.

    Guess who tops the list? SUNY-Albany. That's right. Because, when I think party, I think Albany, New York!

    This is a horrible joke. Clearly, the UW-Madison has been robbed. 3rd place? Are they kidding? These schools can't even tap Wisconsin's keg. They can't go for four quarters, much less five. I blame the judging criteria:

    The "party school" category is based on questions focusing on the amount of alcohol and drug consumption, the amount of time students spend studying, and the popularity of fraternities and sororities.

    So, according to this, Wisconsin is being punished because we party hard and study hard. That makes no sense. We should be rewarded for being a fantastic school and yet still finding time to paint the town (badger) red. We have a degree of difficulty our competition cannot match. strongly condemns this list. It's just another example of the hoity-toity, east-coast bias of the media and academia.

    I second that condemnation. I refuse to believe that some piss-ant school in upstate New York can hang with the likes of Texas, Wisconsin and UGa.

    Plus, any list that excludes LSU loses any shred of credibility. We have a large Tigah contingent here in Austing. These guys still wreak havoc a decade after college.

    I think the criteria for rating the schools are flawed. Without a doubt, the best party school would be where everyone partied most of the time. Therefore, the school with the lowest graduation rate and highest absentee rate would be best for partying.
