How about the University of Michigan? Negative.
The website Niche.com crunches data regarding educational institutions from K-12 through college every year, helping prospective students and their families get as clear a picture as possible of what to expect at any particular school if they were to enroll.
For colleges and universities, Niche scores each one in a variety of areas - from academics and value, to diversity and athletics, to the quality of its dormitories and student life.
Another parameter that Niche grades is each school's party scene. Five Michigan schools have party scenes that are graded "A" or "A+", according to Niche:
5. Ferris State University
Located in Big Rapids, Ferris State's party scene rates 5th in Michigan with an "A". Its criminal justice curriculum gets high marks as well.
4. Central Michigan University
Central Michigan University is located in Mt. Pleasant. Its "A"-rated party scene comes in 4th among colleges and universities in Michigan, according to Niche. CMU offers nearly 300 undergraduate and graduate programs and is well-known for its online master of business administration (MBA) and online graduate cybersecurity certificate programs.
3. Western Michigan University
Niche gives the party scene at Kalamazoo's Western Michigan University an "A+", but it comes in 3rd in Michigan and 72nd in the nation. Its professors and academics don't rate quite as highly.
2. University of Michigan
The "A+" party scene at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor ranks second in the state, and 32nd in the whole country. Truth be told, U of M scores highly across the board.
