Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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....

Half Aspen writes:

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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
