Ohio University has been named the nation’s No. 1 party school.

Calvin College in Grand Rapids is listed 7th in the Stone-cold Sober list.

The school in Athens — a town known for rowdy Halloween bashes — pushes the University of Georgia down a slot in the 2011 Princeton Review student survey released Monday.

Rounding out the top five are No. 3 University of Mississippi, No. 4 University of Iowa and No. 5 University of California Santa Barbara.

Ohio was No. 2 last year. It has made the list 12 times since 1997, but never before reached the top.

The Princeton Review survey is part of its 2012 edition of “The Best 376 Colleges,” which includes rankings in 62 categories. It is not affiliated with Princeton University.

Brigham Young University in Utah is the top stone-cold sober school for the 14th straight year.
