Colorado College in Colorado Springs ranked No. 1 on the Princeton Review's "Reefer Madness" list in its compilation of "The Best 376 Colleges."

The University of Colorado at Boulder ranked as No. 4 on the "Reefer Madness" list.

Colorado College was also ranked No. 5 on the "Birkenstock-Wearing, Tree-Hugging, Clove-Smoking Vegetarians" list and No. 9 on the "Class Discussions Encouraged" list.

CU was also ranked as No. 20 on the "Great College Towns" list (the University of Denver was ranked No. 19) and No. 20 on the "Most Politically Active Students" list.

The Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs ranked No. 1 on the "Don't Inhale" list (the opposite of the "Reefer Madness" list), No 5 on the "Scotch and Soda, Hold the Scotch" list, No. 13 on the "Stone Cold Sober Schools" list (the opposite of the "Party Schools" list) and No. 7 on the "Future Rotarians and Daughters of the American Revolution" list.

As for party schools, Ohio University was named the nation's No. 1 party school this year.

The school in Athens - a town known for rowdy Halloween bashes - pushes the University of Georgia down a slot in the 2011 Princeton Review student survey.

Rounding out the top five are No. 3 University of Mississippi, No. 4 University of Iowa and No. 5 University of California Santa Barbara.

Ohio was No. 2 last year. It has made the list 12 times since 1997, but never before reached the top.

The Princeton Review survey is part of its 2012 edition of "The Best 376 Colleges," which includes rankings in 62 categories. It is not affiliated with Princeton University.

Brigham Young University in Utah is the top stone-cold sober school for the 14th straight year.
