Party time at UF



Gators If at first you don't succeed, party, party again.

The University of Florida has rated second, third and fourth over the years when it comes to the Princeton Review's list of top party schools. But no more.

This year, UF tops the chart.

The annual college ranking book, which comes out tomorrow, finally has deemed UF "Top Party School." Other top ratings included Most Conservative Students - Texas A&M, Best Classroom Experience - Stanford, and Great College Town - DePaul (Chicago).

The Princeton Review takes a look at 368 schools and rather than giving them a rank order, it tries to describe them based on what students attending them have to say.

"We believe college applicants need to know far more about schools than an academic ranking to identify which colleges may be best for them," author Robert Franek said in a news release. "It's all about the fit."
