The top 10 party schools in the US

The Princeton Review is out with its annual list of the top party schools in America, and there’s a new number one — the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Known for its Fighting Illini fans and massive parties like Unofficial, this is UI’s first time landing at the top of the Princeton Review’s list. The ranking is based on a survey that asks students about “the use of alcohol and drugs at their school, the number of hours they study each day outside of class time and the popularity of fraternities/sororities at their school.”

The two most recent schools to top the list — Syracuse University and the University of Iowa — both made the top five this year.

Check out the top 10 party schools in the country below:

#10 -- Colgate University

#8 -- University of Georgia

#7 -- West Virginia University

#6 -- University of California, Santa Barbara

#5 -- Syracuse University

#4 -- Bucknell University

#2 -- University of Iowa

#1 -- University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
