OXFORD, Ohio - Miami University and Ohio University are among the top 20 party schools in the nation for 2013, according to The Princeton Review.
The Review, which released its annual college rankings on Monday, ranked Iowa as the top party school on a list determined by 126,000 students in a nationwide survey.
The organization also released its "stone-cold sober schools" list, led again by Brigham Young University.
Miami also rated highly in the Review's annual best colleges guide, "The Best 378 Colleges" book. It includes 62 lists, such as the best-run college — Claremont McKenna College in California — and best college library — Columbia University in New York City.
The book does not rank universities but bases scores on students' feedback. Miami earned a 90 for quality of life, an 80 for academics and 87 for being green.
