This Central Texas College Was Named #1 Party School in the State
If the party is just as important to you as the education, look no further than right down the road. One particular Central Texas college was picked as the number one party school in the Lone Star State.
Sometimes a quality education comes with a hangover.
University of Texas
With college football kicking off last weekend, the tailgate parties and Downtown Austin have taken it to another level. In fact, The University of Texas - Austin has just been named the 2023 Top Party School in Texas by Niche.
The 2023 Top Party Schools ranking is based on student reviews and nightlife statistics. Top party colleges have a vibrant and diverse party scene - they offer fun options both on and off campus and students rate their peers as being fun, friendly, and into partying.
When it comes to college life, are the kids there for the education or the party? Let's be real - it's probably both.
The grades are in, and UT Austin came back with an A+ all around. Academics, Athletics, Student Life and, most importantly, Party Scene all scored an A+ while Diversity, Professors, Value, Location and Campus Food scored an A. Overall, UT Austin came in #21 in the nation for 2023 Top party School.
Top Party Schools in Texas
With UT Austin taking the #1 spot in Texas, who else landed top 5? Southern Methodist landed at number two on the list while Texas Tech placed third. Texas Southern and Texas State University round out the top 5 in Texas.
It doesn't seem like all that partying is slowing down the graduation rate as UT Austin graduates 88% of students, who go on to earn a starting salary of $46,000 a year.
