OU fails to make Princeton Review party school list for third year in a row

Seven years have passed since Ohio University reigned as the top party school on the Princeton Review’s annual rankings.

OU still made it onto some of the other lists published by the college admission service company. The Princeton Review's 2019 edition of the Best 384 Colleges was released Tuesday and OU was featured on the Financial Aid Not So Great, the Least Accessible Professors and Professors Get Low Marks lists. 

OU also appears on the unranked Best 382 Colleges' Best Midwestern and Green Colleges lists. For the third year in a row, the university was not ranked among the top 20 party schools. 

The University of Delaware took the top party school spot, followed by West Virginia University and Tulane University, last year’s top party school. 

OU previously held the number one spot in 2011 and third in 2012. The university last appeared on the list when it came in 16th place in 2016

According to the Princeton Review’s website, this list is based on student rankings about the use of alcohol and drugs at their school, the amount of time they study each day outside of class, and the popularity of fraternities and sororities at their school.

In the 2019 edition, OU was ranked in second on Least Accessible Professors, 14th on Professors Get Low Marks and 16th place on Financial Aid Not So Great.

In 2018, OU was ranked lower on Least Accessible Professors, coming in eighth. The university was ranked higher on the other two lists, ranking in 11th place Financial Aid Not So Great and fourth on Professors Get Low Marks, according to a previous Post report.

Those lists are just a few of the 62 that are in the 2019 edition of the Princeton Review. The rankings are determined by a survey of 138,000 students that attend the 384 colleges included in the book, according to the website.
