Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

"Party Schools" & "Stone-Cold Sober Schools"

The Princeton Review just came out with its annual ranking of colleges and universities. Two of the rankings are for "Party Schools"and "Stone-Cold Sober Schools." I've gone over these lists noting those with well recognized RT programs. Here is what I came up with:

'Party Schools" with well recognized RT curricula:
The highest ranking school with a well recognized RT program was Penn State University at number 3.

Others with well recognized RT curricula that made the list of party schools included: The University of New Hampshire (number 11); the University of Iowa (number 12); Indiana University (number 14); and the University of Tennessee (number 18).

"Stone-Cold Sober Schools" with well recognized RT curricula were BYU (at number 1) and Calvin College (number 10).

Faculty who believe their school deserved a higher ranking or those from schools that were left off either of the lists are encouraged to comment on this post!
