PRINCETON, NJ – Princeton Review’s 2011 list of best party schools shocked students from coast-to-coast. Harvard is #1!

Princeton Review has come out with their list of top party schools for 2011, and to everyone’s surprise, Harvard takes the title for the first time. College students in Cambridge lead the way in party fun. In celebration, The Harvard Glee Club sang “The Camel Drivers” for five hours straight.  Students rattled noisemakers all night.

Hard-partying college students around the country are up in arms over the selection.  J.T. Cobb, a senior at the University of Georgia said, “No way, man!!  Harvard is for nerds and dorks and boring people. There’s no way they can out party us at Georgia. No freaking way.”

To prove his party prowess, J.T. put on a gas mask and did a mega bong hit AND a keg-stand at the same time. The Princeton Review, the elite organization that also scores the SATs, gave J.T. only a 620 (out of 800) on his keg stand.  Meanwhile, Charlotte Blackmon of Harvard University, who was valedictorian of her Choate high school class and had perfect SAT scores, also did a keg stand for the Princeton Review judges. Her keg stand earned her a 800.  J.T. complained because he thought the judges were influenced by her exposed butt cheek. You decide. Here’s Charlotte in action:

Harvard President , Drew Gilpin Faust,  was not surprised.  “Harvard has a long history of wild parties. Just last winter we had a Scrabble Scramble that was just divine.  “I was bouncing off the walls” said Arthur Goldstein, a freshmen at Harvard.  “I had two oatmeal cookies and a glass of lemonade. I was up until 2 a.m.!”

According to the Princeton Review, Harvard has some of the best “party clubs” in the country. Here are some of the wild events that were happening on campus when the Princeton Review Party Crew visited:

* Ballroom Dance-o-rama
* Shakespeare Sonnet Night with Elena Kagan
* In Vino Veritas: Wine Tasting with Paul Giamatti
* Midnight Squash (Co-ed!)
* Metaphysical 17th Century Poetry Slam
* Corporate Legal Brief Readings – in your briefs!
* Timed Rubik’s Cube Competition
* Afternoon Soda-palooza
* Keg Stand Instruction with Charlotte Blackmon

Harvard students, who are used to being #1 in everything, were ecstatic to hear the news. They want college students across the country to know that they can throw down, too. “I always knew we had the best soirees,” said sophomore Jiddu Balasubramaniu. “There’s a lot of Harvard Haters out there, but we don’t care. We’re better than everyone else… in everything. Forever.”

To celebrate, Harvard students had a Scone and Herbal Tea Party in Harvard Square.  The main attraction:  Charlotte Blackmon doing keg stands.

Here’s Princeton Review’s Top Ten list:

1. Harvard University
2. Bowdoin
3. The Citadel
4. John Hopkins University
5. University of Pierre
6. Bob Jones University
7.  Ohio University
8. Glenn Beck University
9. Santa Monica College
10. Georgia Tech

  1. So true! Having spent two years here, I can testify to the absolute CRAZINESS of Harvard parties! And the best thing is that our girls are beautiful, intelligent and extremely hot! Best place on earth to party and have fun!!!

  2. Harvard may be the #1 WASP party school… but what about those Catholic institutions…?
    Now they really know how to party – with Jesuits at the lead!

    I submit:
    Boston College (trust me, even though it sounds like a bad party)
    Notre Dame (any school that is named "Our Chick" has to know how to party!)
    Georgetown (with its school of foreign service – i.e. bartending for foreign ladies!)
    Catholic University (any school with "lic" in it's name has to party)
    Gonzaga (need I say more)
    St. Scholastica (on second thought, this does not support my argument)
    The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts (we're talking very liberal "arts")

    And for a whole list of party schools visit here: http://www.stirenes.org/information/college_list….

  4. The January streaking: in rigid Maine snow and ice into the frozen coastal water was epic. We men grew small, while our cute coeds classmates perked up in wasy to grab us where we needed it most. Swim on you – Bowdoin Polar Bears, Riska class "93

  5. This is a very interesting article. I'm not hating but must point out that Harvard students do tend to frequent parties at another institute down by 77 Mass. Ave. I question the judging standards for #1 party school vs. #1 pompous gatherings. I have great respect for Harvard as an educational establishment and acknowledge a rich social life but it ends there.

  6. This article is absolutely correct, if Harvard students are anything like the film, THE POOL BOYS, depicts. Release date on Sept. 30, and it is one hilarious, crazy, sexy, hot and wild ride. Do not miss it! Even have a chance to win a date with Sheena Lee, Playboy Cyber Girl!

    • I saw that to..the Pool Boys was super funny with so many hot girls! I am with you there..Sheena Lee is now one of my favorite actresses, she is a total package..super hot and a great actor! I have seen her on playboy before, but this was the first movie I saw her in. Again, hilarious movie and Sheena Lee..what more could you ask for!

    • The photo of the girl hanging upside down, showing off a good side of her, is something The Pool Boys would understand, and highly approve of. Your reply is totally true: THE POOL BOYS was outstanding and so funny. Sheena Lee defies description. The whole movie was awesome. I caught it On Demand and hope the DVD comes out soon.

  7. You don't need any further proof that Harvard is a party school, than checking out THE POOL BOYS! Just had it's Hollywood Premiere last night, Oct. 12, and it was HOT! The super hilarious and sexy film is playing On Demand, and you won't want to miss it at your local theater! Catch it! You will see just how crazy Harvard students can be.

  8. If you haven't caught the funniest film of 2011 yet, what are you waiting for? Princeton may be the #1 party school, but they can always use a few pointers or two. So get Movies On Demand and check this out. Bring along your buds because it's a wild time!
