While parties are definitely a part of the University life, it’s rather dumb to pick for example the University of Georgia, just because it is allegedly the school with the best parties. If you are more interested in drinking, you could pick Providence for the most hard liquor on campus or Ohio University for the most beer on campus. This list looks to me like a lame attempt to make some third class schools look more interesting in order to lure in students.
At least I could not easily find the University of California, Los Angeles or Ivy League schools like Harvard University, Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University. At least one of the Ivy League schools, Brown University, is on the list.
