    I'm sorry but the fact that ASU isn't on this list makes this worthless. ASU puts Iowa to shame.

    How do you judge a party school? Its not like the guy that wrote that went to each school for a few weeks and examined the party scene.

    You could say the same for "fittest colleges" as well.

    I'm going to guess that similar to other rankings it all has to do with a few key factors. They likely take into consideration number of citations/arrests for underage drinking, open container, DUI, etc... Among other too, that finally give them their ranking as there is no way Iowa truly is the #2 party school in the Nation. They are better than Iowa State, I think I can give them that, but even they shouldn't believe that they really are #2.

    Here is how they rank them, "a combination of survey questions concerning the use of alcohol and drugs, hours of study each day, and the popularity of the Greek System." So in the end all they go by is a random survey.

    This survey was based on interviews with students....U of I students think they are a party school. This may be the closest they get to a national championship. Let them enjoy it.

    Bingo. If I had a dollar for every time one of my buddies from Iowa, or one of my friends' buddies from Iowa came to Ames and got drank under the table while ranting about the Ped Mall and Lames, I could probably buy some nice tailgating accessories.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
