    Playboy Names Local College Top Party School

    So here's a little nugget of information that might surprise you. Playboy Magazine just released its list of 2014's Top Party Schools and the University of Pennsylvania was on it!

    Not only did the Ivy League school make the list for the first time ever, it took the top spot!

    Yes, that's right, Playboy Magazine named the University of Pennsylvania the country's No. 1 party school.

    "UPenn puts other Ivies to shame with its union of brains, brewskies and bros," says the magazine.

    The rankings took a variety of factors into consideration -- things like access to nightlife, musical events and creativity when party planning.

    "Boasting a notorious underground frat scene that school officials have deemed a nuisance, these renegades pony up thousands of dollars' worth of liquor for their parties."

    Coming in at No. 2 was the University of Wisconsin, followed by West Virginia and the University of Arizona. University of Iowa rounded out the top five.

    The issue, which also includes honors for "Coolest Indie Music Scene" and "Sexiest Small School" will hit newstands and online Friday.
