Ah, the party school, an American fixture. Many seek an exceptional education while applying for college, but many others go to indulge in the fine art of shotgunning Keystone Light beers and doing excessive amounts of drugs with their peers.

People think of big campus schools like the University of Arizona, the University of Miami, and Ohio State University when thinking of party schools.

Yet the top of the Princeton Review’s Top 20 Party Schools for 2012 is… the University of Maine? Maine! Where did this come from? When I think of Maine, I think exclusively of exquisite lobster, not sloppy hookups with adulterated college girls.

Here’s how one student describes the culture at “UMaine” right now:

A new apartment complex opened at UMaine called The Grove. It turned into a back to back night rager that had hundreds of students lining the parking lot between buildings and called for state troopers and all local towns to bring police to try and control the scene. Kids jumping off roofs, and all the drugs and drinking you can imagine.

We’re a bit conflicted on this one—on the one hand, this is one hell of a way to break in/cause irreparable damage to a brand new housing complex. Kudos for that. On the other, doing backflips off a two-story building is f*cking idiotic. Funny, but f*cking idiotic.

Well, I guess I have a reason to head to Maine other than seafood now.
