There’s more to college life than studying, and BuzzFeed has quantified exactly how much more there is at a variety of schools. We plotted Fiesta Frog’s list of the top 100 party schools against DateMySchool’s hotness index, which measures how attractive people find each university’s students. Schools in the top right of the graph scored high on both scales. BuzzFeed combined party-friendliness and sexiness rankings to produce our top 10:
