ATHENS, OH (FOX19) -

The non-stop party scene in Athens has led Playboy to name Ohio University as the top party school in the nation for 2015.

"OU’s year-round antics are hard to trump," the magazine said. "Court Street, which connects the campus to Athens’s dining district, is a barhopper’s dream: The tiny half-mile stretch boasts 18 bars," the magazine said about the school. 

Playboy's lists the annual Athens Halloween party and #Fest, a spring-time music festival, as two of the reasons that OU is the top party school.

The Princeton Review named OU No. 16 on their list of top party schools of 2015. 

Here is Playboy's complete list:

  1. Ohio University
  2. University of Iowa
  3. Florida State University
  4. Tulane University
  5. University of Illinois
  6. University of Texas
  7. Syracuse University
  8. University of Wisconsin
  9. University of Mississippi
  10. University of Michigan
