CU topped the Reefer Madness list in 2012. Norlin Quad used to host thousands of tokers on April 20, considered a pot holiday, but the campus appears to have succeeded in snuffing out the annual gathering in recent years. CU has also been taking steps to erase its reputation as a party school.

Ithaca College in New York held on to the top spot on the Reefer Madness list, followed by University of California-Santa Cruz at No. 2 and Skidmore College at No. 3. CU had the largest enrollment among the top 10 on the list at 27,010 students.

CU was ranked No. 17 on the “Most Beautiful Campus” list and No. 19 on the party schools list.
