CU Boulder ranked among top 10 party schools by Princeton Review

BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado Boulder was ranked among the top 10 best party schools in the country by The Princeton Review.

CU came in at No. 7 on the annual list for the 2017-18 school year, up from No. 19 last year.

The list is part of The Princeton Review’s annual “Best Colleges” book that ranks colleges in 62 categories by surveying students across the country.

“We know applicants need far more than an academic rating or ranking to find the college that will be best for them,” Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and the book’s lead author, said in a news release. “We created our 62 ranking lists to help narrow that search.

“They are based entirely on data we gather beyond academics that gives insight into what the schools’ enrolled students say about their professors, administrators, school services, campus culture, and student life.”

The full list of the top 20 party schools of 2017-18 are:

  1. Tulane University
