What can we say? College kids around Central Minnesota know how to have a good time!

Niche.com did a study to find the top 'party schools'. They did this study on the national level as well as each individual state. The rankings were based mostly on the feedback from students who were asked to rank each college's "party scene" on a scale of 1-5.

Here are the top 10:

  1. University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
  2. Minnesota State University, Mankato
  3. Winona State University
  4. University of St. Thomas - Minnesota
  5. St. Cloud State University
  6. University of Minnesota Duluth
  7. Augsburg University
  8. College of Saint Benedict
  9. Macalester College
  10. Saint John's University - Minnesota

St. Cloud State had an overall Niche grade of a C+. But their party scene was graded at an A-.

The college of Saint Benedict had a Niche overall grade of a B+, and a matching grade for their party scene.

St. John's University also had an overall Niche grade of a B+, and their party scene fell short getting just a regular B.

Out of the 17 colleges in the state that were graded on this scale the St. Cloud Area did really well! Proud of you all! Just make sure that your grades this semester in class match the Niche party grades.
