PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - Party on, Florida college students.

Two state universities have made the Princeton Review's annual list of top party schools.

The University of Florida ranked 16th and Florida State University ranked 18th on the 2020 list released Tuesday.

Both schools moved up from last year's rankings, when Florida was ranked 18th and FSU was ranked 19th.

Florida made the top party school list for a 27th consecutive year.

FSU has been ranked 24 times since the first list was released in 1992.

Syracuse University topped the list for the 2019-20 academic year, followed by the University of Alabama, University of Delaware, West Virginia University and Tulane University. The University of California-Santa Barbara, Colgate University, Wake Forest University, Bucknell University and University of Rhode Island round out the top 10.

Florida was the top party school for 2009, while FSU has earned the distinction twice in 1997 and 2000 (released in August of the previous years).

The Princeton Review surveys students on the use of drugs and alcohol, the number of hours students spend studying outside of class and the popularity of fraternities and sororities.
