The No. 1 party school status elicits mixed reactions ranging from raves about positive party experiences to concerns about what the new title will mean.

Syracuse University knows how to party according to the Princeton Review — and according to some of its approximately 15,000 undergraduate students.

Marshall Street-area bars, University Neighborhood house parties and one-time events like MayFest make SU a college party hot spot, students said, and nabbed their university a No. 1 ranking in the annual collegiate superlatives this year. This top ranking follows a No. 5 ranking last year and a No. 10 ranking for 2013.

Official says school doesn't aspire to top this category in Princeton Review's annual rankings.

Syracuse University has earned a title as the nation's best, and it's not for basketball or academics.

The Princeton Review announced SU leads its annual rankings of top party schools Monday based on a survey of 130,000 students nationwide.  Students responded to questions about drug- and alcohol-use at their school; the amount of out-of-class study time; and the number of students who belong to fraternities and sororities, according to the organization’s website.

SU has again made The Princeton Review's list based on student survey about alcohol, study habits and Greek system.

For the second year in a row, Syracuse University has kept its place among The Princeton Review’s top 20 party schools list, and it has even moved up a couple notches from last year’s 12th place. This year, Syracuse is No. 10.
