Ohio University Tops List Of Party Schools

Ohio University is the nation's new number one party school, according to a Princeton Review survey of college students.

The Athens, Ohio school edged out last year's winner, the University of Georgia, for the top slot. Ohio was number two on the 2010 list.

Rounding out the top five biggest party schools were the University of Mississippi, the University of Iowa, and the University of California at Santa Barbara.

The list includes 20 schools from across the country, but no North Carolina schools made the cut.

      read my post again, nowhere did i criticize the school, i just stated the obvious, it's a very dangerous area, especially if you don't know it. i don't knock ECU at all.

    I attended Ohio University. It has always been a party school, but at the same time it is also a good school academically. There is nothing around O.U. in terms of population, it is in (very) southern Ohio - probably 10 miles from West Virginia. I think the town of Athens has a population of 4K or so. Compared to Greenville, that is tiny. The only thing to do there is drink. Crime is almost non-existant there, short of drunk and disorderly, DWI, etc.

      Sounds like you are trying to make yourself feel good about where you went to school. Must be you didn't get in to OSU, let me guess your a Buckeyes fan! Nice rationalization of committing crimes!

    This wasn't a Playboy survey, that's why EZU wasn't on there.

    kinda hard to make the list if you're known for the crime that happens around your school. do they have a list of the most dangerous schools?

      If they let students and faculty members with concealed weapons permits start carrying concealed weapons with them, then it will be a lot less crime committed by these ghetto thugs. Also bulldoze the whole ghetto between downtown and the hospital, and replace all that land with new ECU buildings and new student apartment complexes (high dollar) along with new upscale neighborhoods for doctors, nurses, professors, and other employees for both the university and the hospital, then you wont have near the amount of crime. That would make a much safer Greenville for all the students trying to get an education.

        so kicking people out of their homes and demolishing them is the answer? Sounds very Israeli to me....

          It is not their homes. It is probably all goverment funded housing that we pay for. It would just be cheaper to send all the people to prison and let them live there so they would not be a problem to society.
