University of Georgia named top party school
In higher education, it's often all about the rankings. And so my inbox has filled this afternoon with e-mails about the most important list of the year: The Princeton Review's Top Party Schools.
This year the winner is the University of Georgia, which climbed from a fourth place finish last year. The university has made the top 20 for 10 of the past 13 years, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, an honor administrators are not excited to claim.
(Want to read about some less fun college rankings? U.S. News announced its rankings on Aug. 17.)
"UGA has been on the party school list for a while, but it's one we prefer not to lead," university spokesman Tom Jackson said in a statement to the AJC.
