Playboy Names Top 10 Party Schools

This from MSNBC:
Playboy magazine on Friday named the University of Miami as the top party school in the United States based on five criteria that included a nod to brainpower.

The adult magazine, which has only occasionally published the party college list in the past but will now turn it into an annual feature, ranked the schools on campus life, sports, sex and academics, or "brains," as Playboy put it.

As a last criterion, Playboy included "bikini," which combined weather, guy-to-girl ratio and cheerleaders.

The top 10 party schools are below in order of rank:
1) University of Miami
2) University of Texas (Austin)
3) San Diego State University
4) University of Florida
5) University of Arizona
6) University of Wisconsin (Madison)
7) University of Georgia
8) Louisiana State University
9) University of Iowa
10) West Virginia University
The full list is in the magazine's May issue and here.

I truly wish magazines would do away with this type of ranking system. This list is always a farce and a black mark on school's academic reputation. Most of the data is collected second hand and is over three years old. Additionally, there are noticeable spikes in rankings as schools unexpectedly do well on the national sports stage.
