Looking for a Party? We've Got Your Biggest and Tamest Party School Rankings

As students are heading back to campus this fall, at least some of them have only one thing on their minds: Where’s the next party? If they’re headed to UC Santa Barbara, they probably won’t have to look too hard to find it. However, if they attend Liberty University, a party is going to be pretty hard to come by.

Each school was ranked on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the biggest and tamest party scene on the respective scales.

No matter what you’re partying taste, there’s a school out there for you. So whether you party hard or hardly party, check out the schools that may match your party personality.
