I went there for a semester when I was a lad.  It's like being in Apocalypse Now, all day, every day.

My kids are there at this very moment. I very much didn't want them to go for this reason (and the fact that it's a second rate university) but I lost that battle with Wifey who's entire brood went to WVU for generations.
 The University leadership cringes every time they get named to this list.


Fun fact: WVU has the highest drop out rate of Freshman in the entire country and it's largely due to this bullshiat. Our little flowers get away from Mommy and Daddy only to be thrown into the den of inequity.

Jim_Callahan: 1. WVU is, as mentioned, kind of the odd man out on the list. Not for this reason, but because it's not one of the really massive schools population-wise. At least, so far as I know.


It's well above 30,000 (that's just undergrads) and crammed into a fun-sized town designed by David Lynch.

No one in California parties like they do in West Virgina. This includes Hollywood types, whose parties are only expensive, not actually crazy. There's a certain level you can't reach with bouncers around.

I mean, man can have himself quite a time with a bonfire, some friends, and a few jars of shine. In fact, sometimes he don't even need any friends. This one time I was out in the woods alone with my mason jar and this beautiful woman in a fur coat wandered into my camp. Well, she didn't talk much but after a few hits of the jar nature took its course. I had a hell of a time gettin' that coat off of her, but we made the sweetest love right there in my tent. When I woke up she was gone, but there was a bear skin rug under my sleeping bag.

Morgantown is a decaying dump with a third-tier university. There may be lots of drinking going on there, but calling it a 'party' is too kind.

bangmaid: When I went to Michigan state, they spent an awful lot of time and money telling us we *werent* a party school.

Dnrtfa but a lot of these polls and articles are based off of student perception, and not data (such as arrests or alcohol sales).


I went to school on a dry campus, during the years I attended, that had a ridiculously high arrest rate for alcohol possession by underagers. Definitely not a party school, but they hit a lot of the high arrest rates due to poor handling of alcohol and drugs by the younger crowd. Freshman year, there were quite a few alcohol poisonings that made headline news in the regional newspapers. I'm not sure what measure you could properly rate a real party school using anything other than the opinion of participants.

True, if you want to talk about a large school in a small town in the middle of nowhere, Greenville fits that to a "T" - and I am pleased to run into recent grads at alumni events who tell me that weekends still start on Thursday and it's not really a party until you start collecting money around 1 a.m. to go get another keg before the happy store closes at 2.

Monkey_Pants: My parents both attended WVU in the sixties. Whenever the subject of 'party schools' would come up, my mother would say, "WVU isn't on the list because it isn't fair to rank professionals among the amateurs."

IIRC, Playboy has had this list for quite a bit longer than 8 years, I remember seeing '80's issues with them.


Lol your mom liked giving it up at frat parties.

Morgantown is a lot of fun, we used to stay there for business trips in Fairmont.  Cheap booze too.
 
2013-09-26 09:29:15 AM
And to think I wanted my kids to follow in my footsteps at UVA rather than going to WVU.

Wait...what? UVA was top of the list last year?

Never mind. Just puts it in perspective that it doesn't really matter where you go and how good your school is, now doesn't it?

/Leaving for Mo'Town this weekend to see the kiddies and tailgate. Been partying with my fellow snobs from UVA for years. WVU is doing it right. Trust me on that one. At least when it comes to partying. Academics, eh...not so much.

Peter von Nostrand: I'd be drinking heavily if I lived in West Virginia as well


I took a motorcycle trip trough there once. Man, that state is beautiful. But as soon as you pull over for the night and go around town looking for something interesting to do, that's when you remember that, yup, you're in West Virginia. I think the whole toothless hillbilly stereotype is a little overplayed (they do have cities, you know), but it's definitely a place I'd be nervous to live. Granted, this is coming from a guy from Louisiana (albeit New Orleans, which is its own universe), so I'm really in no position to mock other states.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Any "top party school" should be in a place where the female students wear very little for most of the year, Southern California, Arizona, Florida, or Hawaii.


In my experience, "Party schools" tend to be sausage fests.   The guys drink more because of the shortage of available tail to chase.

It is gorgeous. One odd thing I noticed, were the ridiculously high speed limits on totally inappropriate roads. Hilly, twisting and turning two lane roads with 55 MPH speed limits. It was uncomfortably fast, one of the very rare times I've ever encountered a posted limit to be uncomfortably fast. And I'm driving a car designed to maneuver, not an old pickup like the hillbillies.

West Virginia still today has the highest "per-100-million-miles-driven" fatality rate, but is merely number 5 for the per capita traffic fatality rate: http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/811801.pdf, page 3

Depends on the school. At universities like ECU and UNC-Charlotte, both of which started out as "female academies", most of the schools and units tend to be historically female: School of Education, Nursing, etc, and they still are. They also have large schools of music and drama, so you can assume that at least 50% of the guys in those schools are gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) leaving those females unattached.

As they say, a target rich environment.

On the other hand, "prestige" universities are trending slightly more female these days, but they are the kinds of females you don't want to date, or even sleep with. That was certainly the case with my son at a Tier One university. He kept a girl stashed in a nearby town and then fled to a beach town as soon as he graduated, abandoning the women who wanted to know on the first date how much money you hoped to make in your first year out of law school.

Nothing against UF, but I've been to both cities, and Morgantown has Gainesville beat as far as partying goes. Not by a large margin, though. The thing is, there are things to do in Gainesville outside of drinking. In Morgantown, there are only things to do while drinking. Gainesville easily has better weather, but thats part of it. Imagine a 4 month hurricane party in Gainesville (category 1). Thats winter in WVA.

Again, UF is a sweet ass school with a beautiful campus and some kick ass bars, but WVU has them beat. At least IMO.


Oh man, you just reminded me of the '94 blizzard that closed WVU down for a week;  we were rolling kegs thru the dorm halls and stores were starting to run dangerously low on alcohol.  We all cheered when we saw beer trucks moving in the streets again.

WVU Grad, finished 09'. During my 5 years there, we were ranked by the Princeton Review as 4, 2, 1, 3, 5. So this Playboy ranking doesn't do that much for me.

It doesn't particularly help that there is a SUBSTANTIAL population of out of state kids all from New Jersey, who happen to think of the town as their own Jersery Shore #2 and just rage out. But hey, I was there on Grant St for the Pontiac Sunfire getting flipped into the street couch fire. It was just so damn literal.

Oh hell, those f*cking Jersey people. Every night, I was challenged to a fight by some f*cked up guido.  Every single night. And this was before the Playmobil hair and orange skin. The only place to have a sane drunken evening was Terrapin Station, with the hillbillies and the amazing jukebox.
