California College Students Prove They Do Know How To Party At These Places
And so do the students at the colleges and universities in the Golden State. Here is PubClub.com’s rankings of the top party schools in California.
The place has its own beach – is that Californian, or what – and its Halloween parties are legendary throughout the state. This is such a party school that students and alumni are fond of saying that UCSB stands for “U Can Study Buzzed.” It is the unquestioned top party school in California. But the others on this list definitely step up to the bar (or the keg) when it comes to partying.
2.) Chico State
Trivia question: what famous sports broadcaster when to Chico State but did not graduate? Answer: ESPN’s Chris Berman. Students and alumni say it’s because this is such a party school that it’s impossible to seriously focus on their studies, so he left. PubClub.com cannot confirm if that’s truth or rumor but the attitude certainly speaks volumes for this being a big-time party school
First of all, USC has the Song Girls, a cool band that plays songs by Fleetwood Mac and a bar that was the inspiration for the one in the original Star Wars movie. It also has alumni that keep partying well into their advanced years, which is one key criteria of a school making any PubClub top party schools list. It’s a Trojan tradition as rich as Traveler and keeping the names off the backs of the football uniforms.
4.) San Diego State (SDSU)
How can a college in such a fun town in San Diego not be on this list?? San Diego has perfect weather, beautiful people, tons of craft breweries and a super-causal attitude among its people. Students here are simply party training for their future years.
5.) Cal Poly SLO
Stuck in the middle of the state hundreds of miles from the nearest significant city in an otherwise slow area for nightlife, Cal Poly SLO stands out because, well, there’s little to do there except party. That’s the same reason Chico State and UC Davis are on this list.
6.) US Davis
How can any school that has a beer class not make PubClub’s list!? Cheers, UC Davis
7.) UC Santa Cruz
These Banana Slugs are no slugs when it comes to partying. There’s a lively bar scene downtown and on campus, as well.
The Baby Bears are no mere cubs when it comes to partying. For starters, the dorms are steps to several fun college bars in Westwood. And, like their cross-town rivals, the alumni keep partying long after they have graduated. Some even kick it up a couple of notches when they move to Hermosa Beach.
