LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Princeton Review released its annual list of the top American college party schools Monday.

The list is a compilation of results from a survey of American college students across the country taken every year, ranking scholastic and lifestyle categories like best professors, most beautiful campus and best college food.

The list is based on emails voluntarily submitted from 122,000 students from more than 370 campuses across the U.S., according to the Review.

On average, about 325 students from each campus respond, and university administrators often call the rankings unscientific and say they glorify dangerous behavior.

The Princeton Review, not affiliated with Princeton University, is a Massachusetts-based company known for its test preparation courses educational services and books. It has put out its best colleges guide since 1992.

Did not expect Syracuse to be up there at all. Greek life has been under the microscope since my junior year and the bar scene is pretty much non existent.

People are gonna bash me for this but I spent 2 years at Penn State UPark and hated it. I kinda think it was because I'm from an "urban" city (Philly) and I couldn't really vibe with all of the yuppies there
