Botoms up

The Princeton Review's annual poll of 100,000 students is out, and Indiana had one school in the Top 10 of the nation's top "party schools," determined by:

Colleges are ranked based on alcohol and drug use, popularity of Greek life on campus and the amount of time studying outside of class.

With DePauw University at No. 10 and Indiana University-Bloomington at No. 15, Indiana actually has two schools in the Top 20, which helped the Midwest edge out the South 8-7 "for regional pride of place in the party school rankings." There's a dubious honor for you.

My alma mater, Ball State, didn't make the Top 20, so send your kids there if you want them to stay sober. Or to be safe, maybe to Brigham Young, which for the 13th straight year topped the list of "stone-cold sober schools." No Indiana school made it to that list.

Drinkin' at college. These kids today, I tell ya.
