UAlbany once topped this list - now it's Syracuse.

The Orange are at the top of the annual list of the nation's top party schools released by The Princeton Review.  Last year's winner, the University of Iowa, is second. Repeating at the top of "stone-cold sober schools'' was Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

Syracuse says in a statement that it doesn't "aspire to be a party school.'' It says it has an internationally recognized reputation for academic excellence.

As for other college rankings released by The Princeton Review, Colgate in Hamilton tops the list as the most beautiful campus. Union College in Schenectady is 12th in that category. Union is also 15th on the "Jock Schools" list.

West Point was third on the list of "Most Politically Active" schools behind Grinnell (2nd) and George Washington (1st). Vassar in Poughkeepsie is 4th.
