Maclean's says the University of Lethbridge is ranked 30th out of nearly 50 top "party schools' across the country.

The University of Lethbridge has been ranked among the top party schools in Canada.

Maclean's Magazine coming out with its list of the best 50 party universities in the country following a survey of more than 23,000 undergraduates across Canada this year. The students were asked to estimate how much time they spend partying each week.

The U of L was ranked 30th with an average of 2.7 hours of party time for students a week.

Maclean's tallied the total party hours for each school and calculated a mean, based on the number of respondents. It says this approach ensures a small number of “super partiers” — those who say they spend more than 35 hours per week engaged in the activity — don’t skew a school’s results. The average number of hours Canadian students party per week? Just three hours. About one-third of respondents said they don’t party at all. Respondents said they spend an average of $11.80 on drinks per week and consume an average of 3.3 beverages in that time

St. Francis Xavier in Nova Scotia came in as Canada's number one party school with 7.5 hours a week spent whooping it up.
