Parents Money, Well, Spent: The Best Party Schools For 2006/2007

College is starting soon, and with it brings the annual list of the “best party schools,” known better to parents of pre-college age kids as the “list of schools we ain’t sending our kids to.”

This year’s “winner” is the University of Texas at Austin.

From CNN:

The school (U-T at Austin) 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 in a dumpster outside the science lab on a Sunday morning.

There are many more categories covered 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.
