University of Vermont Named One of Nation's Top Party Schools

The Princeton Review released its annual list of college rankings on Monday

The University of Vermont has been named one of the top party schools in the country.

The University of Vermont in Burlington came in at 18th on the Princeton Review’s annual list. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign took the top spot, followed by the University of Iowa, the University of Wisconsin Madison, Bucknell University and Syracuse University. UVM was the only New England school on the list.

The Princeton Review chronicles student life on 380 top U.S. universities, ranking schools in a variety of categories. But the list of the top party schools invariably attracts the most attention.

The most sober school, according to this year’s list, is Brigham Young University for the 18th year running. Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts, was named the 7th most sober school. The United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, was 10th, and Simmons College in Boston was 20th.

Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, was named the top school for students most engaged in community service, a new list this year. Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, topped the “Best College Library” list, while Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, was deemed to have the “Best Campus Food.” Other New England schools taking top spots included Marlboro College in Marlboro, Vermont for “Most Liberal Students” and Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts for “LGBTQ-Friendliest.”
