Off of that list I would go to Arizona.

Florida State would be ok.

UW-Madison is always huge. Was rated #1 by Playboy a couple years back. I know it's also top 20 for public college academics. Football games are huge there and then there's the two big parties. Mifflin Block Party in May is great and Halloween on State St is even bigger. At one point it was said to be the biggest party in the US behind New Years Eve at Times Square and Mardi Gras in New Orleans. May have dropped a bit since now the city blocks off State St and charges to get on. This way they can pay for the extra police and cleanup since it has been know to turned into a riot. However, they are also able to afford stages with bands this way.

As for the whole UW system that you mentioned, the schools are smaller than Madison. Milwaukee has about 30,000 students and is the closest. They are all pretty big party schools though. Especially with Milwaukee being "America's Drunkest City". UW-La Crosse has a big Oktoberfest bash.

As far as partying goes it's tough to beat Florida State. It's a pretty insane scene down there.

The list is the following one:

- Eastern New Mexico University
- Florida State University
- Lenoir-Rhyne University
- Michigan Technological University
- Montana State University
- New Jersey Institute of Technology
- New Mexico State University
- North Carolina State University
- Oklahoma State University
- Texas State University - San Marcos
- Troy University
- University of Arizona
- University of New Mexico
- University of Oklahoma
- University of Texas at El Paso
- University of Texas at San Antonio
- University of Wisconsin System
- University of Wisconsin-Madison


I add some Canadian schools:
- Brock University
- Langara College
- Mount Royal University
- Selkirk College
- University of Manitoba
- University of Regina

Thanks.

If I were you I would think about the best education because girls and parties are going to be at every major school and if you think people will call you lame for that look at it this way, the lame uncool kids in school usually end up being your boss, in Georgia people say if you want an education go to Tech(GA Tech) if you want to party go to Georgia, I support Georgia when it comes to sports but you hardly hear about it doing anything major where as GA Tech has a nanotechnology program and they work with NASA and the CDC, so going to a party school may not help you if you look at your long term future.

Ok, every one says "trust me" or "thinks" they know.

There are two on that list that are hardcore.

- New Mexico State (LC has nothing to it, so everyone party's, thats all there is to do)
- Arizona State

Washington State University in Pullman has a "party" reputation and should be included. Mostly, because it attracts many students from the the Seattle/Tacoma region who find they have nothing to do in Pullman. Sorry, but it's the fact.
