U. of Iowa now the No. 2 party school in nation; Syracuse first

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (AP) - The University of Iowa was bumped to the No. 2 party school in the nation this year by Syracuse University.

The Orange are at the top of the annual list of the nation's top party schools released Monday by The Princeton Review.

Rounding out the top 5 are: the University of California-Santa Barbara, West Virginia University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Repeating at the top of "stone-cold sober schools" was Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

Syracuse University officials aren't commenting on the private university's showing in the 2015 edition of "The Best 379 Colleges."

About 130,000 students on 379 campuses were surveyed for the book, which contains 62 top-20 lists ranking factors like financial aid awards, athletic facilities and food.

The publication is not affiliated with Princeton University.
