The University of Illinois has placed 5th in the top five party schools ranked by The Princeton Review. The ranking is based on a survey of 130,000 students.

Syracuse University
University of Iowa (last year’s winner)
University of California-Santa Barbara
West Virginia University
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The news from The Princeton Review comes out the same week that a University of Illinois Chancellor gets $400,000 for resigning.

PARTY ON, ABE: The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has partied its way into the top spot on an annual list of top party schools in the country.

University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Chancellor Phyllis Wise announced she will resign just two weeks before classes start for the Fall semester on her decision due to a range of “external issues” that she says have become a distraction for the school. Apparently there are several lawsuits challenging her decision-making.

She would have made $549,068 — one of the highest paid public employee salaries in Illinois, instead she will get the $400,000 departure bonus and a faculty job at more than $250,000 annual salary.

$650,000 > $549,000 at least for this school year.
