In the words of Jagged Edge and Nelly, where the party at? Apparently, it's at four colleges in Western New York. Niche has released its list of the Top 25 party schools in New York State and four are located here in WNY. According to Niche,
The 2022 Top Party Schools ranking is based on student reviews and nightlife statistics. Top party colleges have a vibrant and diverse party scene - they offer fun options both on and off campus and students rate their peers as being fun, friendly, and into partying.
Let's be honest...what college student doesn't want to enjoy some extra-curricular activities? That said, going to a party school is a different beast. I attended undergrad college in Florida and there were definitely many opportunities to party in Tallahassee. It's basically a college town, so I enjoyed having access to a robust nightlife, but I'll admit it can be distracting. I got my Master's Degree from one of the top party schools on the list, New York University, which landed at #8. By the time I was in grad school, I was focused on working and getting my degree, so I didn't attend any college parties, but I did enjoy some music industry parties.
