11) Dartmouth College – Hanover, NH
Nestled into the bucolic New Hampshire backcountry, Dartmouth College defies the conventional thinking of Ivy League schools. You can walk through the campus during spring semester finals and not hear a peep. Walk the same route the next night and find yourself debating which of the open fraternity house parties to attend. All fraternities welcome any student that possesses a Dartmouth ID card. Rolling Stone perennially ranks Dartmouth College in its Best Schools to Party issue. Of course, the school competes with any other Ivy League school for achieving high academic standards.
