BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — After researching "the good, bad and blurry" on college campuses, Playboy Magazine has ranked the nation's top party schools — putting Arizona State University at the head of the class of 25.
The rankings are featured in the magazine's November issue. This is the first time the magazine has ranked colleges since 1987, when California State-Chico was No. 1. This year Chico came in second.
"Chico has had bragging rights for 15 years, causing students to binge with pride while parents and administrators have dried out fraternities and sororities," Playboy's Associate Editor Alison Prato wrote in a letter to readers. "Our public relations department is bombarded with calls from students who wonder where their school ranks. We wanted to hear what goes down on campus— the good, bad and blurry — in (their) own words. More than 1,500 (students) wrote."
