Raise a glass — BYU has once again secured the No. 1 “Stone-Cold Sober” university spot in the Princeton Review’s annual college rankings. This is the 20th year in a row BYU has earned the ranking.
BYU was followed by College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout (No. 2), Missouri and City University of New York—Baruch College in New York City (No. 3). On the other end of the spectrum, Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana took the No. 1 spot for “Lots of Hard Liquor.”
Each year, The Princeton Review releases rankings of the best colleges and universities in multiple categories. The Princeton Review surveys about 359 students per university each year. A total of 382 colleges participate in the survey.
Other notable rankings BYU earned include:
- No. 1 – Scotch and Soda, Hold the Scotch
- No. 2 – Top 25 Entrepreneurship: Undergrad
- No. 2 – Most Religious Students
- No. 4 – Colleges That Pay You Back w/o Aid
- No. 8 – Best-Run Colleges
- No. 8 – Most Conservative Students
As a running joke, BYU references its popular BYU Creamery chocolate milk whenever the Stone-Cold Sober rankings are released. This year, BYU shared statistics on the ever popular cold beverage on Twitter:
