Syracuse chief: No. 1 party school label not OK

The chancellor of Syracuse University says his college's ranking as the nation's top party school is

The chancellor of Syracuse University says his college's ranking as the nation's top party school is a "wake-up call" for change.

Kent Syverud's (SIHV'-uh-roodz) message was posted on the university's website Tuesday and emailed to students, staff and alumni.

He says being designated The Princeton Review's No. 1 party school isn't a good thing for a school to be labeled. He says Syracuse alumni, students and faculty like to have a good time, but they didn't pour their lives into building the university "primarily to create a party."

The chancellor says Monday's release of The Princeton Review's rankings serves as a wake-up call for working on two things: Enhancing awareness of Syracuse's academic excellence and paying more attention to activities — parties included — that "get in the way of students succeeding."
