Penn State is in the top 10 no longer, at least when it comes to partying.
The university continues to move down the Princeton Reviews annual party school list. In the latest rankings, Penn State is No. 11, down from No. 7 in 2011 and No. 1 in 2009.
The list is part of the reviews 2013 The Best 377 Colleges, which goes on sale today.
It is based on a survey of 122,000 students that rates schools on 62 topics that cover academics, politics, quality of life and schools social scenes.
West Virginia University earned the No. 1 spot on the party school list.
Penn State did make the top 10 in other areas, including being named the No. 1 school for best college newspaper, No. 4 jock school and No. 2 for career services.
The drop in partying status probably comes as welcome news to Penn State administrators, who have been trying to put the focus on the universitys academic achievements, in addition to its athletic wins.
