Party schoolsThe Princeton Review has released its unofficial ranking of the top 20 party schools in the U.S. for 2009, and topping the list is none other than the University of Florida, where the balance of alcohol and drug use, Greek activities and actual study hours were determined to be the least productive. The list is based on the opinions of 120,000 surveyed students.

The previously celebrated Arizona State University, which topped Playboy's 2002 list, has slipped to number 17 in The Princeton Review's list, while Chico State, which held the crowning spot for 15 years following Playboy's 1987 review, is nowhere to be seen -- likely owning to the city's crackdown on student partying, including cancelling Halloween and other major student holidays.

The current list, for your reference (but not your parents'), is below:

1) University of Florida, Gainesville, FL
2) University of Mississippi, University, MI
3) Penn State University, University Park, PA
4) West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV
5) Ohio University, Athens, OH
6) Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, VA
7) University of Georgia, Athens, GA
8) University of Texas, Austin, TX
9) UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA
10) Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL
11) University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH
12) University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA
13) University of Colorado, Boulder, CO
14) Indiana University, Bloomington, IN
15) Tulane University, New Orleans, LA
16) University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL
17) Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ
18) University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN
19) University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL
20) Loyola University, New Orleans, LA
