UW-Madison is no longer the top party school in the country, according to one student poll, but it remains a place where the beer flows like nowhere else.
The Princeton Review’s annual college rankings, released Monday, put UW-Madison at No. 5 in its “Party Schools” category, down from No. 1 in last year’s survey.
The university retained its top ranking in the “Lots of Beer” category and again placed No. 1 for its student health services.
The party school ranking is seen as a dubious distinction among campus administrators, though many students consider it a mark of pride.
New Orleans’ Tulane University was crowned king of the party schools in this year’s ranking, which is based on a survey of 137,000 students at colleges across the country.
