Here's the latest buzz on the State University at Albany: No. 1 party school.
The top ranking was bestowed in the Princeton Review guide to the nation's 311 "best" colleges, which is due out this week. The State University of New York's campus in Albany jumped two spots to dethrone last year's top party school, West Virginia University, which fell to No. 11.
The Princeton Review -- no relation to Princeton University -- bases its guide on a survey of about 56,000 students at the 311 schools.
Albany, which has about 9,600 undergraduate students, edged out the University of Wisconsin-Madison (No. 2) and the University of Florida in Gainesville (No. 3). Brigham Young University, owned by the Mormon church, topped a complementary list of "stone cold sober schools."
