Playboy magazine released its latest top party school ranking Wednesday, about a week later than it originally planned.
Playboy planned to release their ranking last week, ahead of the October issue where it will be printed. But anti-rape activist group FORCE threw a wrench in those plans by posting a fake Playboy website, tricking people into thinking the magazine replaced the party school ranking with a guide to practicing consensual sex.
FORCE kept pushing the issue, by releasing a their own magazine about consent online this week. They also announced a new contest for college students to encourage activism around the topic on campuses nationwide.
But while activists try to change the conversation, Playboy kept right on with their normal list about which colleges have the best party scene.
Last year's winner, the University of Virginia, completely fell off the top 10. West Virginia University took over the top spot, making them one of the most consistently ranked among all party school lists.
The ranking was done by Playboy editors, using data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the NCAA and the Census, as well as feedback from social media, according to a news release. All but one school is a large state university, and each institution in the top 10 has a major football program.
Check out the top 10 party schools according to Playboy in the list below:
