IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The University of Iowa has moved up two spots and now sits No. 2 on the Princeton Review’s annual list of top 20 party schools.  The party school rankings are one of 62 lists included in the Princeton Review’s 2013 edition of “The Best 377 Colleges.”  The book has the Iowa school No. 6 on its “Lots of Hard Liquor” list and No. 9 on the “Lots of Beer” list. The university on Monday dismissed the rankings as unscientific. The school and Iowa City have been trying to curb binge boozing and underage drinking.  No other Iowa college was on the list of top party schools.
