The Princeton Review’s 2018 Rankings Are Here


For the last 26 years The Princeton Review has been ranking colleges. They have rankings from “Best Professors” to “Best Party School.” With a total of 62 categories and 382 schools the “Best College” lists can give you a headache. The Princeton Review takes their rankings seriously and gather all their data and information from students themselves. About 137,000 students from 382 schools were surveyed so these lists are pretty accurate.

Don’t worry about searching through their 62 lists because College Candy found the best and complied them right here for you. Keep scrolling to see who is the #1 party school for this year.
