7. University of California – Santa Barbara – Santa Barbara, CA

Another repeat on the top 10 party school list is University of California – Santa Barbara. Like many of the schools on the top 10 list, it’s also considered a Best College by Princeton Review.

If you want a picture of the average UC Santa Barbara student, look to the “Birkenstock-Wearing, Tree-Hugging, Clove Smoking Vegetarian” list, on which they ranked #20. They also appear at #11 on “Their Students Love These Colleges,” #9 on Best School Newspaper and #3 on Happiest Students lists.

University of California – Santa Barbara is home to close to 23,000 students and has a 91% retention rate.
