The Top Party Schools 2012 list has been published by Playboy magazine and it appears that the University of Virginia takes the lead, followed by the University of Southern California and the University of Florida.

The schools were picked by Playboy’s editors, who considered feedback from readers, students, alumni, campus representatives and others. They also looked at factors like male-female ratios on campus, academics, athletic records and proximity to recreational hot spots in compiling the list. A spokesperson for the magazine said universities were measured on 900 data points in three categories: Sex, Sports and Nightlife.

The magazine also quoted a biotechnology student who lamented that “gorgeous girls are scarce” but praised the school for having students with focus.

In the Top 10 Party Schools for 2012 are as follows:

  • 1. University of Virginia
  • 2. University of Southern California
  • 3. University of Florida
  • 4. University of Texas
  • 5. University of Wisconsin
  • 6. University of Georgia
  • 7. Vanderbilt University
  • 8. Tulane University
  • 9.Texas Christian University
  • 10. Ohio State University

In the Sporting LIfe category, Ohio State tops the list. “In Columbus, top-notch tailgating is rivaled only by the games themselves.” And in Night LIfe, Southern Methodist University is No. 1. “At SMU, Dallas is your never-ending house party.”

Well it seems school hasn’t changed.
