This is a PSA for all high school seniors. Ya’ll have had a tough time with covid taking away much of your high school experience. So you deserve to get the most out of your college years. So this list will be of particular interest to many of you. Planning on going to college close to home? You’ll want to make sure you know the top North Carolina party schools.

This is according to Barstool Sports. Two North Carolina schools made the list, one always finds itself near the top, while the other was a little more of a surprise to me. Also shocked that my alma mater NC State didn’t make the list. If you’ve ever tailgated in the fairgrounds at Carter Finley you know. Additionally, a South Carolina school made the list. I’ll give you a hint it’s one of the big two, but is it USC or Clemson? You’ll have to read on to find out.

Let’s be honest. College is about more than just higher education, going to class, and getting a job after 4 years. Those are all important things, but so much of what you learn in college happens outside of the classroom. It’s about an experience. Fortunately, the good folks at Barstool Sports took one of the team and conducted exhaustive research to create this list of the Top 50 Party Schools.  College is the best four years for many people, and choosing a school where you will be happy is important. Best of luck in making the right decision for you!
