According to the website, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was listed as the number 8th top party school in the country in 2022. The party scene grade that the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign gets is an A+ according to, and the school ranks only behind Tulane in first place followed by Florida State, Wisconsin, Howard University, The University of Alabama, the University of Georgia, and Syracuse.

Now as far as other schools from Illinois on the list? There are none. The list only ranks the top 25 party schools in the country and there is only one other school from the Tri-States that makes it on to the list and that is the University of Iowa in 13th place, no schools from the Show-Me State of Missouri.

So do I agree with this ranking? To be honest, I agree with a lot of schools on this ranking Tulane, Florida State, the University of Iowa, I have always thought of them and heard from people that those are party schools but when it comes to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign I would have never guessed it to be a top ten party school in the country, I have partied there a couple of times with friends who went there and always had a great time but wouldn't have thought it to be a bigger party school than say Miami which comes in at 15th on the list. Do you think U of I belongs on this list?


LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
