Penn State Falls off Playboy Top Party School List

Earlier this week, Playboy released an info-graphic ranking the top 10 party schools in America. Penn State [GASP] wasn’t included.

Calm down, people. It’s going to be okay.

Playboy claims its rankings were based on three criteria (don’t worry, I’ve already found people to blame):

  • Nightlife
  • Sports
  • Sex

And here is the actual top 10:

1. Virginia
2. USC (Southern Cal)
3. Florida
4. Texas
5. Wisconsin
6. Georgia
7. Vanderbilt
8. Tulane
9. TCU
10. Ohio State

In recent years, Penn State has seen its party stardom shrink. The Princeton Review ranked Penn State  #3 in 2010 and  #7 in 2011 after the infamous #1 ranking in 2009. Penn State was also ranked #2 by Playboy last year, so this was quite a drop. However, Penn Staters can still take solace that their school was ranked #2 party school of the decade in June.

And, if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that Hugh Hefner must RESIGN NOW!
