The Princeton Review has released its annual college rankings, including the top party schools in the nation.

Check out these lists of party schools and also the "stone-cold sober schools," posted by the New York Daily News:

Top 10 party schools:
1. West Virginia University, Morgantown
2. University of Iowa, Iowa City
3. Ohio University, Athens
4. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
5. University of Georgia, Athens
6. University of Florida, Gainesville
7. University of California-Santa Barbara
8. Florida State University, Tallahassee
9. Miami University of Ohio, Oxford
10. Syracuse University, Syracuse, N.Y.

Top 10 stone-cold sober schools:

1. Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah
2. Wheaton College, Wheaton, Ill.
3. U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md.
4. U.S. Coast Guard Academy, New London, Conn.
5. Grove City College, Grove City, Pa.

7. City University of New York-Brooklyn College
8. Wesleyan College, Macon, Ga.

10. Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Mich.

Here are some New England colleges that stood out for other reasons, and why, according to the AP:

Northeastern University for the best career services.
Maine's Bowdoin College for the best campus food.

If your child really wanted to go to one of the top 10 party schools, would the "party school" reputation make you think twice about sending him or her? What do you think about the ranking for New England schools?
