College is starting soon, and with it brings the annual list of the “best party schools,” known better to parents of pre-college age kidsÃ‚Â as the “list of schools we ain’t sending our kids to.”
This year’s “winner” is the University of Texas at Austin.
The school (U-T at Austin)Ã‚Â beat Pennsylvania State University, West Virginia University and last year’s winner, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the Princeton Review survey of 115,000 students at campuses around the United States.
It topped the overall list — its first time atop the Princeton Review chart — by ranking second in the use of hard liquor, third in beer drinking and 13th in marijuana smoking.
Wow, it sounds like the University of Texas at Austin is just a Willie Nelson enrollment away from becoming a top-10 school across the party board.
Brigham Young was voted the most “stone cold sober” school. Nothing ruins the college experience like a campus devoid of people vomiting inÃ‚Â a dumpster outside the science labÃ‚Â on a Sunday morning.
There are many more categories coveredÃ‚Â in the Princeton Review survey.
If there’s a better argument for home-schooling until your kids are 30, I have yet to see it.
The entrance exam for the UTA is rigorous.
