Iowa Named Top Party School

The Princeton Review’s annual listing of the top colleges in the country has moved Iowa up from number two to number one in the category or party schools — though a university spokesman says the ranking doesn’t make sense. The rankings are based on surveys done of students, which U-I spokesman Tom Moore says doesn’t seem to match up with the information the university collects.

The Princeton Review also had Iowa ranked number one in “lots of hard liquor” and number four in two categories: “students study the least” and “lots of beer,” Moore says the effort to curb problem drinking has been a cooperative effort between the university and officials in Iowa City who instituted an ordinance the prevents underage students in bars.

The Princeton Review ranking could make parents think twice about sending their kids to the school. Moore says if that’s the case, anyone can talk to university officials and they can see the results of the surveys done by the school.
