2009 – Party School Update

Around this time back in 2008, I posted the top 10 party schools as per Princeton Review.  I thought it was time for a little update, with some of our own comments and insights of course! HS Seniors take note:

2009 Top 10 Party Schools 

1. Universtiy of Florida – Up from #4 last year.  Their multi-year championship runs in football and basketball would even get Stephen Hawking to the keg!

2. University of Mississippi – Stable at #2… Because what else is there to do in Mississippi?

3. Pennsylvania State University – Up from the 6 spot.  They’ve almost got this right!  Check out game day at this Big 10 school and you’ll see why it earns its spot in the top 3.

4. West Virginia University – Down from #1 a year ago. While I can’t explain the drop, I can’t even explain why they’re in the top 5? I guess this calls for a visit!

5. Ohio University – Athens – Up from #9.  Reasoning… See Mississippi.

6. Randolph-Macon College – Unranked last year.  Never heard of the place, can someone enlighten me on this one?

7. University of Georgia – Down from #5.  Another football powerhouse.  Drop in ranking must be due to their dissapointing football season. Clearly depressed fans party nearly as hard!

8. University at Texas, Austin – Down from #3.  Someone please explain to me how this happened? UT is known for partying, what warrented such a drop?

9. University of California – Santa Barbara – Up a slot from #9 – The school is on the beach!  Do I need to explain any further?

10. Florida State University – Unranked last year. Personally I don’t see how they made the top 10.  I was lucky enough to go to the Orange Bowl back in 2005 (PSU vs FSU) and it was like a Penn State home game.  Their fans couldn’t travel 7 hours to our 21! 

SizzUp’s replacements for the 10 spot on the list:  University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Alabama, Auburn… And I can probably think of 10 others more deserving than FSU!

Underage Crackdown


Just a heads up to all those headed to the College BCS Championship game tonight.

“The state Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco will be sending 12 to 16 agents to Thursday’s game between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Florida Gators.”

Penalties will be enforced!  (Read More Here)

Now I went to PSU in State College, PA.  For those of you who may not know, PSU is known for being hard on those caught drinking underage.  All are punished!  Now I spent all 4 of my football seasons (3 for which I was under 21) at PSU tailgating hard before every game (6-8 games/year).  Not ONCE did I get an underage violation. 

Here are my 2 simple rules for staying out of trouble while still having a “good time”:

1 – Red Plastic Solo cups & Water bottles are your best friend.  In other words don’t be obvious by sitting there with a glass beer bottle or aluminum can full of beer.  Take the time to pour it into a paper/plastic cup or even a water bottle, it’ll be your savior!

2 - Drink smart!  Don’t drink to the point where you are falling over yourself and drawing unwanted attention.  I know this might be hard for some of you, but its better than paying that hefty fine.

It is as simple as that!  Sure the police presence is annoying, but it doesn’t have to ruin your fun!
