Toh-GA! Toh-GA! Toh-GA!
Another year. Another Top-10 party school list. Time to dust off that Animal House DVD for another viewing.
<p>In my view 99% of colleges <em>are</em> party schools. I can't quote a source on that opinionated statistic, but I'm probably in the ballpark. Take a quick look at the storied histories of American colleges, or colleges anywhere for that matter, and you're going to find a long tradition of getting wasted on weekends (or even <em>during</em> the week).</p><h3>Anyway, for what it's worth, here's <a href="http://www.wltx.com/news/article/145819/2/USC-Makes-List-of-Americas-Top-Party-Schools-" target="_blank">this year's list of the Top-10 Party Schools</a>, as ranked by Princeton Review: </h3><p>1.
