UGA ranks as No. 2 college party town in the nation

Just like with Bill Belichick’s high praise for UGA developing NFL talent, here’s something else that may be shown to elite recruits that the Bulldogs are targeting: released its annual list of the top college party towns across the country, and UGA ranked as No. 2, trailing only Tulane in New Orleans, per @CFBHome.

Who wants to do all those hard football practices and winter workouts, and not be able to have a little fun in the downtime?

That’s some major love for the Bulldog nation from Niche.come, which bases rankings on”dozens of public data sets and millions of reviews. Our data scientists and user researchers rigorously analyze data and user opinions …” Per Forbes, “ relies on student reviews, like a Yelp for colleges, this list seems close to what students might really want to hear.”

Here’s the top 15 from the list:

1 Tulane
2 Georgia
3 West Virginia
4 Wisconsin
5 Howard
6 Illinois
7 Indiana
8 Alabama
9 Florida State
10 Texas
11 Iowa
12 Southern Methodist
13 California
14 Miami (FL)
15 Penn State
