MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-Madison is the nation’s top party school, again.

The Princeton Review’s 2017 edition of the “The Best 381 Colleges” says West Virginia is second, followed by the University of Illinois, which was the top party school last year.

The University of Iowa ranked sixth.

Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, was the most sober school in the country for the 19th straight year. And Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, has the best financial aid.

The rankings are based on The Princeton Review’s survey of 143,000 students attending 381 colleges.

UW-Madison last earned the best party school designation in the 2005 edition.
