Reader: Students who want to attend a party school should save money and pitch a tent

Yesterday, we shared the Princeton Review's latest analysis of top party schools (Colorado institutions missed the cut) and the highest scoring reefer madness colleges (CU-Boulder slipped from first to second). All of which inspired one of our readers to wonder what kind of students are basing their enrollment on these kinds of standards anyhow....

I was under the impression that attending a university was to receive an education and improve one's station in life. If partying is at the top of your list might I suggest saving the tens of thousands of dollars and pitch a tent on a California beach. Oh, and when you're done with "partying," don't forget your name tag and paper hat when you go to work serving those fries.
