Administrators at the University of Colorado Boulder have long hated the school's frequent appearances on lists identifying the best party schools in the country, and their concerted efforts to change the school's reputation seem to be paying off.

Note that in 2013, CU Boulder failed to make the Princeton Review's party-schools top ten.

That same year, however, CU Boulder ranked second on the publication's list of reefer madness schools after previously topping that particular chart.

The school's continued crackdowns on 4/20 celebrations on campus appears to be having an effect, however. CU Boulder's reefer-madness ranking slid to fourth place last year, and on the just-released 2015 roster, it's fallen even further.

Where did CU Boulder wind up? Find out by counting down the photo-illustrated top ten, featuring excerpts from Princeton Review data and its description of each institution in question.

Also note that another college in Colorado made the cut, too — as you'll see. To read the complete Princeton Review reefer madness item, click here.
