Nice Move


College is the best four years of your life, as the saying goes (it’s not, by the way. Great, but not the best). When you’re spending a chunk of your “good years” at college, you’ll want to head off to somewhere fun. A place where you can not only get an education, but also let loose and rage your face off.

Thanks to Business Insider, you can now know if you’re at a great place to do those activites. They put together their list of the top 30 “most fun” colleges in America. How did they do it? They compiled several rankings from Princeton Review. Some of the rankings they included found the top schools for social life, high student investment in athletics, lots of alcohol, and a high quality of life.

Here is what they came up with:

30. Loyola Marymount University
29. Gonzaga University
28. Wabash College
27. Auburn University
26. University of Florida
25. Florida State University
24. Rice University
23. Providence College
22. University of Mississippi
21. University of Georgia
20. Colgate University
19. LeHigh University
18. University of California at Santa Barbara
17. Whitman College
16. University of Wisconsin
15. Gettysburg College
14. Vanderbilt University
13. Southern Methodist University
12. Bucknell University
11. Virginia Tech
10. University of Dayton
9. Claremont McKenna College
8. Pennsylvania State University
7. West Virginia University
6. Syracuse University
5. Clemson University
4. Kansas State University
3. University of Iowa
2. Tulane University
1. University of Illinois

Overall, it’s not a terrible list. Most of the schools included are the ones that come to mind when you think of fun colleges — Ole Miss, Wisconsin, Tulane, Iowa, Illinois, etc. Those schools, I can accept. Why Vanderbilt was higher than Mississippi and Auburn, I’ll never know.
