It's been difficult for the University of Texas to make the Top Ten in anything significant since Vince Young left, but they have finally accomplished it: They are a Top Ten party school, according to the

Princeton Review


It was a close-run thing, though: UT came in eighth, nudging out the Universtiy of California-Santa Barbara and Florida State University.

Just a few more bong hits in Cali, or one more Everclear kegger in Tallahassee, and UT could have been sucking wind.

Although we're sure Matthew McConnaughey's stats are still being included in the research.

In case you're wondering, the number-one party school in the nation is....wait for it....take another toke....pass out....puke....focus your eyes.....The University of Florida!!

Topping FSU once more!

The University of Houston, alas, didn't get within a sniff of the list. Damn commuters.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
