Let's look at the list of schools:
1. University of Georgia
2. Ohio University
3. Pennsylvania State University
4. West Virginia University
5. University of Mississippi
6. University of Texas
7. University of Florida
8. University of California
9. University of Iowa
10. DePauw University
Do the fraternity/sorority systems on these campuses help to promote the party school image, or are they actively working against said image? Do we care? As a larger community, what does it say when our "scene" is one of the major factors in the Princeton Review's rankings? What if the top 10 party schools were schools without any fraternities or sororities on campus? What if?
What if the Princeton Review started ranking campuses with the best fraternity and sorority systems? My definition of best, by the way, would be values in action, high academic standards, service to the community, and making the world a better place. What if? What if those rankings also included the 10 worst campuses when it comes to a thriving and active fraternity/sorority system? What if?
