Newsweek: Florida Colleges Are Among Least Rigorous, Biggest Party Schools
Newsweek has ranked the country's least rigorous four-year colleges according to the percentage of applicants admitted, median SAT/ACT scores, workload and student-faculty ratio.
Florida schools didn't do so hot:
1. University of Central Florida
2. Florida State University
4. University of South Florida*
14. Florida Atlantic University
21. University of Florida
Remember, we're talking about the least rigorous schools, so ranking in the top 25 is bad.
No Florida university made the most-rigorous list.
But that's not all. Newsweek also ranked the nation's top party schools according to on-campus arrests and disciplinary actions for drug and alcohol use. West Virginia University was No. 1, but several Florida colleges made the top 25:
9. University of Florida
13. Florida State University
25. Rollins College

*Not to be be picky, but for the USF listing, the Newsweek editors accidentally used a pic of California State Polytechnic University-Pomona. Mountains in Florida? Always visit the campus in person, kids.
