The Partiest of All Party Schools: University of Florida

Go Gators! After a 15-year struggle on the list, University of Florida has finally clinched the number one spot ... of the Princeton Review's Top 20 Party Schools!

The University of Florida can raise a glass to another national title — best party school in the country. The Gators, known for wild celebrations following national championships in football and basketball, wrested the party title away from West Virginia University and beat out the University of Mississippi and Penn State University, in the Princeton Review survey of 120,000 students released Monday.

The university has made the top 20 party school list for the past 15 years, but has never been No. 1.

Freshman Allison Belanger, a journalism and political science major, said she's only been on campus for a few weeks but already has had no problem finding a party. "All I have to do is leave the dorm," said Belanger, 17. "A lot of people study hard and party hard."

How about the nation's "Stone-Cold Sober Schools" list? Topping that is Utah's Brigham Young University, which has the top spot for the 11th consecutive year.

To SonofMagicFact:

Are you a University of Florida student? Who uses "UFL student?" You must also realize that the UAA has its own funds and it is not a major part of UF's budget. What they do get is minute compared to their own "private" funds elsewhere. Get your BLOODY facts right, mate. If you are upset about UF, you can transfer to FSU, USF, or countless other schools in Florida. The coaches maybe making a combined 3.5 million per year, but how much revenue to they bring in? More than 3.5 million dollars!

Consider UF to be a microcosm of the USA. The athletic department is the Republican Party. The rest of the school is the Democratic Party. Republicans, who yell louder and longer than anybody, always get what they want. Think of military spending. We do not have a Department of Defense, we have a Department of OFFENSE. The Dems can't agree on anything, so they get steamrolled, and continually have funding cut for things that basically help most people.
As far as being at UF, if you don't like it, there's a simple solution: transfer to somewhere else.

Trust me. I'm a UFL student, and this utterly appalls me. You can have your top party school. I don't want that. I'm not going to college to get drunk out of my mind. I'm going to college to learn. Don't get me wrong. I think it's really cool that the Gators won those three national championships a couple of years ago. What I don't think is so cool is the fact that between Urban Meyer and Billy Donovan, who coach football and basketball respectively, they make a combined 3.5 million dollars a year. That's my tuition money that's helping to pay for it. When the school had to cut 300 million dollars from the annual budget the athletic departments are still getting EVERY SINGLE BLOODY DOLLAR they ask for. It makes me very angry. Ugh. I wish I were going to another school.

I'm always a tad disappointed when dear old Cal fails to make this list. I don't think the survey considers LSD a "party" drug, however, which probably continues to handicap Berkeley to this day.
