Ole Miss No. 7 Top ‘Party School,’ No. 28 ‘Most Amazing College Campus’

Princeton Review’s 2017 edition of “The Best 381 Colleges” was released Monday. The “best of” rankings features 62 categories, including best “party schools.”

A category administrators likely least appreciate Ole Miss ranked No. 7 best party school on the list. When it comes campus settings, the University of Mississippi ranked No. 28 out of 50.

“Ole Miss is the quintessential southern university, with beautiful classic buildings and a campus steeped in tradition,” The Princeton Review wrote. “Football Saturdays here are a religious experience, and tailgating before a game in the Grove is one of the coolest college football experiences one can have. The Grove is populated with oak, elm and magnolia trees, and tents are added on fall Saturdays. Notable buildings include the Lyceum, which is the oldest building on campus (1848). It is pictured on the school’s official crest. Another interesting building, and piece of history, is the School of Medicine, which was used as a Civil War hospital for both Union and Confederate soldiers.”

The University of Wisconsin at Madison is the top party school in the nation. The Badgers beat out West Virginia University for the top spot, as well as last year’s winner, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
