College students consider the University of Iowa the nation’s best party school, a poll released Monday said. The University of Georgia, which was ranked first, second and fifth over the past three years, fell to 11th.

UGA has made the ranking at least 14 times in 1997, but now no longer is in the top 10. It was ranked first in 2010, second in 2011 and fifth in 2012. However, UGA came in at 12th on the list in 2005 before regaining a top 10 slot in following years.

The rankings, bestowed by The Princeton Review, gave Iowa the top spot on the list determined by 126,000 students in a nationwide survey. Rounding out the Top 5 are the University of California, Santa Barbara; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; West Virginia University and Syracuse University.

Other Southeastern schools included in the top 20 are the University of Florida at sixth and Florida State University at 12th.

UGA showed up on some lesser-known The Princeton Review lists this year. The school was 20th on the “best campus food” list, 17th for “best health services,” 17th on the “jock school” list, 19th on “lots of Greek life,” 13th for “lots of beer” and fourth on the “lots of hard liquor” ranking.

The organization also released its “stone-cold sober schools” list, led again this year by Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and followed by Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill.

Coincidence?

UGA can't seem to stay ranked highly in any poll.
