(NEW YORK) — It’s the annual list that college students get a kick out of and administrators dread: the top 20 party schools in the U.S. as compiled by The Princeton Review, not, as always, to be confused with Princeton University.

The crown goes to Syracuse University based on a survey of 130,000 students.

Of course, The Princeton Review’s latest edition of “The Best 379 Colleges” doesn’t just cover parties. Students also rank their schools in terms of education, professors and overall lifestyle.

For instance, Vanderbilt University was number one for happiest campus while Oregon’s Reed College featured the best profs.

Oh, the antithesis of a party school is Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, which again topped the list of “stone-cold sober” schools, to no one’s great astonishment.

Here are the top 20 party schools:

1. Syracuse University
2. University of Iowa
3. University of California-Santa Barbara
4. West Virginia University
5. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
6. Lehigh University
7. Penn State University
8. University of Wisconsin-Madison
9. Bucknell University
10. University of Florida
11. Miami University (Ohio)
12. Florida State University
13. Ohio University-Athens
14. DePauw University
15. University of Georgia
16. University of Mississippi
17. Tulane University
18. University of Vermont
19. University of Oregon
20. University of Delaware
