STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- An annual survey says Penn State University is the nation's No. 1 party school.
The school known partly for its football tailgate weekends and fraternity and sorority scene snatched the title away from last year's winner, the University of Florida, which finished second in the 2009 Princeton Review survey of 122,000 students released Monday.
It's the first time Penn State has finished first in the dubious category. The school has been on the list the last seven years, and finished third in 2008. The listing covers Penn State's main University Park campus in State College.
The annual rankings also highlight the country's "Stone-Cold Sober Schools." Brigham Young University in Utah topped that list for the 12th straight year.
The nation's top party schools:
1. Penn State University, State College, Pa.
2. University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla.
3. University of Mississippi, University, Miss.
4. University of Georgia, Athens, Ga.

    We should congratulate the EL community, police and MSU student relations in reducing this problem. Making examples of the trouble makers is the only way to get rid of the party school image.
