NEW: URI Named Top Partying School in US in New Ranking
Monday, February 04, 2013
"The students at these schools party harder than any other schools in the nation," crowed FiestaFrog, which is an online source for where parties, bar specials, and nightlife are happening near campuses in real-time. "Congratulations, scholars at these fine institutions, for making your parents and alumni proud! This list should hang next to your diploma to remind you that you also got a degree in partying."
URI is Rhode Island's only top party school
URI was the only Rhode Island school on the list. University of Vermont was New England's biggest party campus, ranking #30. Quinnipiac in Connecticut landed at #42, University of New Hampshire's main campus came in at #46, UMass Amherst at #52, and University of Maine ranked #54. Fitchburg State College in Central Massachusetts ranked #73.
To create the list, FiestaFrog says it "visited campuses, polled students, and spoke to countless partiers who attend or attended schools across the country."
"If your school is not on the list, that must mean your school doesn’t party hard enough!" according to FiestaFrog. "If this is the case, you are going to have to party more, party harder, and step your game up this year," according to the site.
