CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- The University of Iowa may top the list of the nation's top party schools but the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign isn't far behind.

Illinois' flagship university comes in at No. 3 on the list that The Princeton Review released on Monday. The list is determined by a nationwide survey.

The campus' party reputation is enhanced by a single annual event, Unofficial St. Patrick's Day-- or, simply, Unofficial. It's when thousands converge for a day of drinking at parties and in bars. Local police ticket hundreds every year.

Students age 19 can enter bars in Champaign and age 18 in Urbana.

The organization also released its "stone-cold sober schools" list -- led again this year by Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah; and followed by Wheaton College in Wheaton.
