Tailgate Parties Define The Best Party Schools For Students and Also Alumni
Tailgate parties are celebrations, gatherings where students and alumni mix and mingle, where opposing fans make their presence known, where the celebration of a fall Saturday on a college campus has everyone in a festive mood.
At LSU, they start with kegs and eggs even when they have night games. At Ole Miss, a “Hotty Toddy” greeting will get you a drink at the Grove. The scene is similar at hundreds of campuses, both big and small.
There’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world.
And it’s what also defines a Top Party School school.
That’s why PubClub.com’s Top Party Schools rankings use one criteria that Playboy, the Princeton Review and whatever other ones out there do not, and that is to include the alumni factor. For it’s not just what the students are doing, but how they continue to party after they have graduated. And sometimes, long after they have taken their last class.
There are fewer things in life that bring out one’s passion the way colleges do with the pride people have for their Good ‘Ol U. And that passion comes out the most at tailgate parties for the football games.
Often, it’s the alumni that party the hardest; they have their alumni tents and one thing those tents have is plenty of alcohol. Having good is fine, but there better be booze!
Good alumni also gather at house parties and bars to watch their team’s away games, go to social functions, cocktail mixers and mix it up throughout the year.
But it’s on game days and tailgate parties where the true college party spirit comes out in everyone.
That’s way the PubClub.com Top Party Schools cheer is: “Win or Lose, We Booze!”
