UCSB makes Top Ten party school list (again)

April 19, 2010

Poor UC Santa Barbara. They don’t seem to get much respect. The campus boasts 1-2-3-4-5 Nobel Prize winners on its faculty, but the school just can’t seem to shake that party down image. Once again, UCSB has the dubious distinction of being the only California school to crack the Top Ten list for party schools in the nation. [Playboy]

“UCSB is the perfect mix of sun goddesses, sand, and studying,” Playboy gushed. “Chico State may get a touch higher, but UCSB grads go on to do great things after their six years in college.”

UCSB was ranked No. 8 this year. University of Texas (Austin) came out on top. Other universities in the Top Ten include:  West Virginia University, University of Wisconsin (Madison), University of Miami, East Carolina University, Arizona State University, Rollins College, Plymouth State University, and University of Iowa.

Worst Party School ended up being a tie between Oral Roberts and BYU.
