Black Bears know how to party, according to a newly released list of the top party schools in the country. 

The University of Maine Orono has made the list of the best party schools in the nation. The Princeton Review ranked the school at  No.16 out of 20 other schools. The University of Vermont in Burlington parties slightly harder coming in at No.12. The University of Delaware topped the annual list.

Factors that schools are ranked on are beer, liquor and drug consumption, hours students spend outside of the classroom daily, and the popularity of fraternity and sorority's on campus.
