Virginia Ranked As No. 1 Party School

Playboy magazine has ranked the University of Virginia, America’s oldest public university, as the top party school in the country. The university founded by former President Thomas Jefferson in 1819 beat 100 other colleges nationwide for the top honors, NBC reported. Runner-up was the University of Southern California, followed by the University of Florida. Rankings were based on scores in three categories: sporting life, nightlife and sex life, Playboy magazine said in a statement. University of Virginia ranked 16th, third and second in those categories, respectively, WTVR reported. While students at UVA are likely impressed by the ranking, university administrators are not happy and they are demanding a recount/Alison Jackson, Global Post, via Boise Weekly. More here.
