By DORIE TURNER/ The Associated Press

ATLANTA — The University of Georgia has won a national title this year — top party school.
The Princeton Review announced Monday that Georgia is ranked the country’s No. 1 party school on its now infamous annual list. The Athens campus has been on the list 10 times since the ranking was created in 1992, but this is the first time the university has taken the top spot.
University spokesman Tom Jackson said the list is not one the school with an enrollment of about 30,000 wants to lead.
Georgia beat out Pennsylvania State University, West Virginia University and University of Florida — which were the top party schools over the last three years.
The ranking is based on voluntary e-mail surveys of 122,000 students at more than 370 colleges across the country.
