These Are Playboy’s Top 10 Party Schools

1 minute read

The University of Pennsylvania’s “work hard, play hard” mentality is paying off. Working hard has made the Ivy League school the 8th best school in the nation, according to U.S. News, but playing hard has secured it the number 1 spot on Playboy‘s ninth annual Top 10 Party Schools.

The Quakers are known for their notorious underground frat scene, off-campus parties, Spring Fling and Philadelphia’s big bar scene, according to Playboy. Meanwhile, the runner-up, the University of Wisconsin in Madison, earned its spot thanks to its many tailgates, city-wide celebrations and students’ “ability to drink away the freeze.”

Here’s the full list:

1. University of Pennsylvania

2. University of Wisconsin

3. West Virginia University

4. University of Arizona

5. University of Iowa

6. University of California, Santa Cruz

7. University of Miami

8. Colorado State University

9. University of Texas

10. Syracuse University
