Party Schools

Ann Althouse is a law professor at the University of Wisconsin law school in Madison, and she has a great blog that I read daily. The police in Madison are planning (CNN) how to deal with the college and law students who have, in the past, celebrated Halloween in a mob of up to 100,000 people. Playboy named it the number one party school in the nation this year, a distinction which its students have hailed and administrators condemned.

It must be a mixed blessing for colleges to make the lists of top party schools. They usually don't keep their party-school designation for more than 2 or 3 years in a row because money is thrown at the police and campus security forces to crack down on partying, but free publicity isn't a bad thing.
