Miami University named among top party schools

OXFORD, Ohio -- Miami University has notched another “top honor” but it’s not one that parents may approve of.

The Princeton Review ranked the Oxford school as No. 11 in its list of top party schools -- that’s five spots higher than last year. Ohio University slipped to the 13th spot.

The rankings are based on student response from about 130,000 surveys that Princeton Review sends out. The survey asks questions ranging from the use of alcohol and drugs on campus, to the number of study hours the students perform each day and the popularity of the fraternity and sorority scene on campus.

Princeton Review published the lists Monday in conjunction with the release of its annual guide, "The Best 379 Colleges - 2015 Edition."

The top part school this year was Syracuse University. It dethroned the University of Iowa, which is now No. 2.

Rounding out the top five was the University of California-Santa Barbara at No. 3, West Virginia University at No. 4 and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was fifth.
