And the award for the hardiest University partyers goes to....

Syracuse University has the honor of being the top party school in New York State, a title they've held on to for several years on Niche's Top Party Schools list.

The party scene at the school gets an A+. To no one's surprise, athletics do as well. Go Orange!

The University is #7 in the country for Top party schools that have a student body motto of "party hard, work hard." You better work hard after spending almost $48,000 a year on tuition. And it's not easy to get in either. The acceptance rate is 69%.

University at Albany, SUNY

The University at Albany, SUNY comes in just behind Syracuse University at #2 in New York and #47 in America. The school also gets an A+ for their party scene.

It's harder to get into the University of Albany than at Syracuse with a 57% acceptance rate. But it's a lot cheaper with tuition costs at a little over $17,000 a year.

The student motto on campus is pretty much the same as Syracuse - "Study hard, party harder"
