ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The University of Georgia is the only Southeastern Conference member among the Princeton Review's annual list of the nation's top 10 party schools.

Georgia comes in at No. 8 in this year's rankings by the college guide.

The Athens News-Banner reports the ranking is the highest for Georgia since 2012, when it was ranked fifth.

SEC members Ole Miss and the University of Florida also are on the party school list but didn't rank in the top 10. The University of Mississippi comes in at 12th, and Florida is No. 14.

The University of Illinois is No. 1 in the new party school rankings, and administrators aren't happy about it. An Illinois spokesman says the ranking paints the university's students in a false light.
