For the sixth time in its 58-year history, Playboy magazine has released its list of Top 10 Party Schools. The much-talked-about rankings, featured in the magazine’s May 2011 issue (on newsstands and online at www.playboydigital.com) were determined by Playboy’s editors with input from students, fans of Playboy’s social media pages, alumni, feedback from Playboy campus representatives at schools across the country, and interviews with countless others.
Additionally, other factors that were taken into consideration for the schools that made the list include their male-female ratios, academics, and the winning percentage of their sports teams, as well as their proximity to beaches, ski slopes and lively music scenes.
Playboy’s 2011 Top 10 Party Schools:
- University of Colorado-Boulder
- Pennsylvania State University
- Arizona State University
- University of Western Ontario
- University of Texas-Austin
- University of Wisconsin
- University of Georgia
- University of Tennessee-Knoxville
- University of Central Florida
- University of California-Santa Barbara
In addition to its Top 10 rankings, Playboy’s May issue also features a “Class Act” list which crowns 17 additional schools as category winners. Awards include “Most Coveted Dorm Room” (Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s old dorm at Harvard), “Best College Sports Bar” (The Swamp Restaurant in Gainesville, FL), and “Hottest Sorority” (San Diego State’s Alpha Phi chapter).
A complete list of all of the winners can be found at www.playboy.com/partyschools.
Any SD Alpha Phi girls want to show us around the next time we’re in town? 😀
