Bucknell, Lehigh Top 5 Party Schools: Survey

Students at two Pennsylvania universities can raise a glass to rounding out the annual Top 5 list of America’s best party schools.

Lehigh University and Bucknell University rounded out the Princeton Review's 2017 edition of "The Best 381 Colleges" top party schools list.

University of Wisconsin-Madison topped the list compiled from surveys asking students about alcohol and drug use on campus, the popularity of Greek life and the number of hours they study each day outside of class.

UW-Madison is famous for its parties, especially Halloween and an end-of-year block party. Every home football game is preceded by hours of off-site drinking.

West Virginia University in Morgantown came in second, followed by the University of Illinois' flagship campus in Urbana-Champaign, which was ranked No. 1 last year.

Bucknell also topped Princeton’s list for "Lots of Greek Life."

For students who don't care to drink, Brigham Young University is the place to be. The private school that's affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints took top honors in the "Stone-Cold Sober Schools" category for the 19th straight year. [[238904721, C]]
