PHOENIX (AP) -- Arizona State University again has cracked a list of the top 20 party schools in the nation.

The 2011 Princeton Review Survey ranked ASU at No. 17.

Ohio University in Athens, Ohio was named the top party school in the nation.

It's followed by Georgia at No. 2, the University of Mississippi at No. 3, the University of Iowa at No. 4 and the University of California at Santa Barbara at No. 5.

The Princeton Review survey is part of its 2012 edition of "The Best 376 Colleges," which includes 61 other rankings in categories such as best professors and best campus food.

Brigham Young University in Utah tops the list of stone-cold sober schools for the 14th straight year.

Arizona has consistently been named among the top party schools and in 2002 was named the No. 1 party school in the nation by Playboy Magazine.
