UGA drops on top 'Party Schools' list

The Princeton Review released "The Best 378 Colleges" book on Monday, which includes the latest list of top 'Party' and 'Sober' schools in the country.

In 2010, the University of Georgia was atop of the Top 20 Party Schools list. In 2011, the university was ranked second and in 2012 fifth.

UGA is ranked 11th this year as a top party school, while two other Georgia schools made the Top 20 Sober Schools list. Wesleyan College is ranked seventh and Agnes Scott College is 15th.

Questions for the “Party Schools” list centered on the use of alcohol and drugs on campus, the popularity of fraternities and sororities, and the number of hours students reported studying each day, according to a Princeton Review publicist.
