If you ask 126,000 college students 80 questions regarding academics, the administration, the student body, and life on campus you’d get a massive pile of data that could be used to learn somethings about their colleges. This is exactly what the Princeton Review does every year. And after the’ve sorted through their data they start to begin to make lists. Lists like “Best Classroom Experience,” “Happiest Students,” “Best College Newspaper,” “Dorms Like Palaces,” “Best College Library,” and, of course, “Best Party Schools.” On August 5, Princeton Review released their latest issue of Best 373 Colleges for 2014, and along with it came the best and worst party schools.
