Playboy magazine names Virginia the #1 party school

Obviously I'm not gonna link to the article, so here's a summary.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. --

Playboy magazine says the University of Virginia is America's top party school.

The magazine's 2012 Top Party Schools list is featured in the October college issue.

Playboy said Tuesday in a news release that the rankings are based on 900 data points across three categories: sex, sports and nightlife.

Playboy's editors rated U.Va. second for sex, third for nightlife and 16th for sports.

The University of Southern California was rated No. 2 overall, followed by the University of Florida, the University of Texas and the University of Wisconsin.

I have a few thoughts:

1. Arizona State fell off.

2. I graduated in '06. In my first year a ranking like this would've seemed completely implausible. By the time I finished my 4th year this would've made a lot more sense. There's so much to do on a Saturday in September if you really think about it. Dining, Rugby Road, the Engineering pregame frathouse parties, the sports complex, movie theaters (Both in Newcomb and at the open air mall), chilling on the Lawn, drinking at polo matches, etc. This must be the reason for the high nightlife ranking, because C'Villle ain't exactly the nightlife capital of Virginia.

3. How exactly do we rank 2nd in sex? Is it because we, as an honorable student body, collectively really good at doing it? Is it because of all the places to do it on campus (and off campus, hello Public Storage!)? How much does the Lawn streaking factor into the score?

4. This doesn't bother as long as we're still a academics-first school. That's always gotta be the priority.

Playboy’s full top 10 list:

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
8.Tulane
9.Texas Christian
10.Ohio State

Do you think this could be a positive for recruiting?
