So Syracuse University has been named the #1 party school in the country.
The party school ranking is based on survey responses of 130,000 students at 60 schools. The rankings are primarily influenced by student responses to questions regarding the use of alcohol and drugs on their campuses, the number of hours spent studying per day, and the popularity of sororities and fraternities.
That being that.. Syracuse University is NOT happy about this "honor". Here's their official statement:
"We are disappointed with the Princeton Review ranking, which is based on a two-year-old survey of a very small portion of our student body. Syracuse University has a long-established reputation for academic excellence with programs that are recognized nationally and internationally as the best in their fields. We do not aspire to be a party school. With new leadership, we are very focused on enhancing the student experience, both academically and socially. Students, parents, faculty and the full Syracuse University community should expect to see important and positive changes in the year ahead that will improve and enhance the student environment in every aspect."
