Playboy magazine has released its 2013 ranking of the country’s 10 hardest-partying universities and West Virginia claimed the No. 1 spot for the first time.
Playboy, which plans to publish the rankings in its October issue, pointed to two big annual parties at West Virginia – FallFest and St. Patrick’s Day.
The gatherings are when “thousands of strapping Mountaineers take to the streets to major in booze-fueled debauchery and minor in public disturbance,” the magazine said.
Playboy said the ranking is based in part on data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the U.S. Economic Census and feedback from more than 12 million social media fans of the magazine.
