BYU celebrates place on Princeton Review rankings

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Brigham Young University isn’t just at the bottom of the list of party schools.

The Mormon church-owned school also gets among the lowest scores for pot smoking, gay tolerance and political diversity.

The Princeton Review said Monday that BYU has the lowest beer consumption among 377 colleges. It also calls BYU the most religious school; the school with some of the most conservative students, and No. 3 among “Don’t Inhale” schools.

BYU spokesman Todd Hollingshead says the college is happy to rank low on the party list. He jokes that BYU students are stocking up on root beer and chocolate for the fall semester.
