Playboy names the University Colorado at Boulder number one party school

Thousands of people at CU Boulder fill the lawn to celebrate the pot-centric holiday of 4/20.

Thousands of people at CU Boulder fill the lawn to celebrate the pot-centric holiday of 4/20.

Looking for a place to party instead of study?

Try the University of Colorado at Boulder.

The hard-drinking and happily-pot smoking school ranked number one in the magazine's annual Top 10 Party School's survey.

The list cited Boulder's numerous medical-marijuana dispensaries nearby, the four breweries in town and it's "super hot girls" as it's qualifications for the top spot.

"You know Boulder is a party school because whenever you tell someone that you went there, the first thing they ask is, 'Did you graduate?'" the magazine added.

The list is done with factors including winning percentage of sports teams, proximity to beaches or ski slopes, social media pages, alumni and more, according to the company.

Behind CU Boulder was the football-loving school of Penn State, the always warm Arizona State, Canada's University of Western Ontario and the University of Texas at Austin.

Wisconsin, Georgia, Tennessee, University of Central Florida and the University of California, Santa Barbara rounded out the top 10.

While students may have been thrilled with the honor, administrators at the honored colleges were left hanging their heads.

"I don't think any post-secondary institution would want to be associated with Playboy," an unimpressed Susan Grindrod, a UWO associate vice-president, told the London Free Press on Wednesday.
