Syracuse University No Longer Top Party School, Colgate University Loses Most Beautiful Campus Honor
Syracuse University is no longer the top party school in the nation. They fall to the 5th spot in the 2015 Princeton Review. Colgate University also loses the honor of most beautiful campus, dropping to 9th this year.
SU officials weren't happy with the top party school recognition last year, saying "we do not aspire to be a party school. With new leadership, we are very focused on enhancing the student experience, both academically and socially. Students, parents, faculty and the full Syracuse University community should expect to see important and positive changes in the year ahead that will improve and enhance the student environment in every aspect."
Those changes have not only affected the top party school honors at SU, they've also landed Syracuse at #7 for Students Pack the Stadium' list. Go Syracuse Orange!
Colgate University went from the Most Beautiful Campus to #9 on the list this year. The school also made the 10th best Party School list.
