In 1984, one of the biggest movies was a comedy titled, Revenge of the Nerds.  It starred a young Anthony Edwards, Julie Montgomery, Robert Carradine, and Ted McGinley and followed the exploits of a group of nerds who were entering college.

The movie was filled with all kinds of teenage shenanigans that basically centered around drinking and the pursuit of girls.  With all the partying, when did these students actually attend classes?  More importantly, is that what college life is really like?

A recent report by the website, lists the top party schools in the country.

According to the website, the top party school in the country honors goes to the University of California Santa Barbara.  Interesting to note that while they scored an A+ in partying, they only received a C+ for safety.

Closer to homeRutgers University made the list of top party schools in the country, placing 24th.  While Rutgers placed 24th out of 1500 schools that were ranked, it's important to note, that Rutgers is also number 21 out of 700 schools as best colleges for criminal justice in the country.
