University Of Texas Keeps #1 Ranking; Ohio State Joins The List For 2020-21
Posted Aug. 27
The football team is ranked #3 in the AP preseason poll but the students are #2 in another important poll: PubClub.com’s annual list of Top Party Schools.
The Crimson Tiders rose up from #4 in last year’s rankings, leaping over Ole Miss and Wisconsin, to come in just behind #1 Texas.
The move was based on the fact that PubClub.com was in Tuscaloosa last fall to witness the partying up close in a series of livestream shows for PubClub LIVE. From Innesfree Pub to the thumping and wild Gallettes to Moe’s and more, the Bama students showed they definitely do know how to party, PubClub style.
Still, Alabama could not overtake the University of Texas. The Longhorns keep the top spot due to an incredible bar scene on Sixth Street, which surpasses that of even Tuscaloosa.
The Top Party Schools rankings have a new member this year, The Ohio State University, at #6. And that’s without having any football this fall.
Other schools in the rankings are UCSB (students say this stands for U Can Study Buzzed) at #5, the crazy Cajuns at LSU #7, Arizona State at #8, USC and #9 and Florida at #10.
Rollins College, a water ski school in Orlando, take the top spot in the Top Small Party Schools category.
Unlike other Top Party School rankings, PubClub.com also factors alumni into our process, for we know that real party schools don’t stop partying when the students graduate.
These rankings also just don’t stop at partying, either; they include key elements that help create the party atmosphere, such as Best Cheerleaders, Best Bands and Best Bowl Game.
The article also includes several comments from students and alumni, some at schools you may have never heard of but sure know how to party.
After all, the PubClub cheer is: “Win Or Lose, We Booze!”
