MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - UW Madison is back in the Top-10 in the Princeton Review’s annual list of the nation’s top party schools.
Wisconsin’s flagship public campus is Number-eight, after being 13th a year ago.
The new ranking is based on a nationwide survey of 126,000 college students as part of an annual book called “The Best 378 Colleges.”
It’s been published for just over 20 years, and it includes 62 lists.
Claremont-McKenna of California is named the best-run college.
Columbia of New York was chosen to have the best campus library.
UW Madison used to be the country’s Number-One party school, but university and city officials have worked together to address problems with alcohol over the last few years.
In 2012, Madison passed an ordinance to crack down on large house parties, and offer more entertainment options for those under the legal drinking age of 21.
Starting this fall, all incoming students will be expected to take an online program to learn about the dangers of alcohol abuse.
