According to an AP article by Carolyn Thompson on aol.com:

"BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse University has claimed the title of nation's top party school.

The No. 1 ranking was revealed Monday by The Princeton Review based on a nationwide survey of 130,000 students.

University officials had no immediate comment on the private university's showing in the 2015 edition of "The Best 379 Colleges." The book contains 62 top-20 lists gauging student satisfaction with professors, financial aid awards, athletic facilities, food and other factors.

Rounding out the top 5 party schools were: the University of Iowa (last year's winner), the University of California-Santa Barbara, West Virginia University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Repeating at the top of the "stone-cold sober" schools was Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah."
