COLUMBIA (WACH) -- The University of South Carolina is getting high marks from The Princeton Review - but not for academics this time.
The group ranked USC as one of the top party schools in the nation. USC came in at number 20 in the 2012 rankings.
According to the review the rankings are determined by a combination of survey questions concerning the use of alcohol and drugs, hours of study each day, and the popularity of the Greek system.Related Stories USC scientist gets $3M to study chlorine spill effects USC offers course in zombie movies USC students study pros, cons of video games
Ohio University at Athens came in at number one on the list. USC's fellow Southeastern Conference schools Georgia and Mississippi came in at numbers two and three respectively.
