Penn State Students Are Good At Stealing Stuff From the Internet
Most college students are broke. When you’re broke, the little bit of money you have will ordinarily be spent on groceries and beer– the essentials.

This is especially true when you can just download these things online for free using torrent clients, even though it is technically illegal.
With the help of ScanEye — a website that monitors public torrent usage based on IP addresses — Torrent Freak obtained a list of the most active universities using torrent networks. Penn State University ranks 25th in the country on the list with 381 “hits” since last November.

New York University came in second with 986 hits. University of Houston (795 hits), University of Southern California (776 hits), and Texas A&M (768 hits) rounded out the top 5.
