Where’s The Party At? The University Of Miami

The University of Miami was voted the top party school in the U.S. by none other than Playboy, which has been rating party schools for 20 years. This year, the schools were ranked according to five criteria — campus life, sports, sex, “brains,” and bikini. That last criteria was a combo of weather, guy-to-girl ratio, and cheerleaders. And “brains” means academics, because “you are in college for a reason, to get an education,” said Playboy Assistant Editor Rocky Rakovic. Playboy used a scientific equation that quantified GPAs, freshman retention, and Princeton academic reviews to figure out the brainpower of American college students. In order to make the list, the fun had to happen on campus, so colleges where the partying took place on the fringe of campus or in nearby cities were excluded. One surprise result was the University of Wisconsin’s sixth place ranking because the “bikini” criteria favored schools in warm climates. They must party hard, snow or shine, in Wisconsin. After the jump, the full list. [Playboy via Reuters]
