UCSB Makes Top 10 Party Schools In America List

Posted on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 12:53am


UC Santa Barbara has once again made a top-10 list in America that the university’s administration won’t be touting to prospective students, and faculty members.

UCSB finished third in the annual rankings of top party schools in America.

The Princeton Review ranked Syracuse first, the University of Iowa second, and UCSB third.

UCSB was second on the list last year.

The party school reputation has created problems over the years, attracting thousands of students from other campus, as well as young people in general to unplanned, unsponsored Halloween and spring break events.

In May, one of those events turned into a full fledged riot in Isla Vista, resulting in numerous arrests and injuries.
