Playboy has named UC Santa Barbara as one of the country's Top 10 Party Schools of 2010. The only California campus to make the cut, at UCSB their #8 ranking is credited to their "perfect mix of sun goddesses, sand and studying." Of course, being included in this 5th annual list isn't purely academic. Okay, so it's not really academic at all. Notes Playboy: "UCSB grads go on to do great things after their six years in college." So who's summa cum laude for the 2010 party class? It's the deep thinkers of the University of Texas at Austin. One LA school earned an honorable mention: USC, for the "hottest cheerleaders." Trojan pride, indeed. Previously: UCSB Ranked 10th Best Party School in the Nation (2008).
