For students, it's the list for which they wait anxiously. For parents, it's the list they dread -- the nation's top party schools. This year's winner -- or loser, depending on your perspective -- is the University of Georgia.

The school in Athens, Georgia has been on the list 10 times since the Princeton Review created the rankings in 1992, but this is the first time it has taken the top spot.

While its 30,000 students are sure to toast the accomplishment, University spokesman Tom Jackson said the list is not one the school wants to lead.

Georgia beat out Penn State, West Virginia University and the University of Florida, which were the top party schools over the last three years.

The rankings are based on e-mail surveys of 122,000 students at more than 370 colleges across the country. Here are the top 10:

1. University of Georgia, Athens, Ga.

2. Ohio University, Athens, Ohio

3. Penn State University, University Park, Pa.

4. West Virginia University, Morgantown, W.Va.

5. University of Mississippi, Oxford, Miss.

6. University of Texas, Austin, Texas

7. University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla.

8. University of California-Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, Calif.

9. University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa

10. DePauw University, Greencastle, Ind.
