1. Iowa 

With an A+ ranking, the University of Iowa is number one for the whole state of Iowa this year, which I doubt is much of a shock for anyone.

Founded in 1847, it is the state's oldest institution of higher education and is located alongside the picturesque Iowa River in Iowa City, one of America’s most beloved college towns. Home to one of the most acclaimed academic medical centers in the U.S. and the world-renowned Iowa Writers' Workshop, the UI offers more than 200 majors, minors, and certificates to help students create their own path of study.

But who cares about all of that?! Let's Party. When you go to their website it says,

Iowa is where great stories begin. It's time to start yours. Find out how.

Both Iowa and Iowa state have some very famous party stories.
