As an ex-McGill student, I've only heard stories of the epic party-shenanigans that go on at Bishop's University. Nay, not simple stories, but legends, as any of the tales I did happen to hear seemed too debaucherous to be true.
But true they are, as Maclean's has pretty much confirmed Bishop's commitment to partying, naming the Quebec university the second biggest party school in all of Canada.
Surveying over 10,000 students attending 100 different Canadian universities, the Maclean's party investigation asked participants a fairly simple question: how much time do you spend time partying?
Well, actually the question was a little more involved, with students asked to break down how much time they devote to studying, being in class, traveling, working, extracurriculars, and partying, of course.
Then, the surveyors created a "party score" for every university, "based on the number of hours students say they party, divided by the number of respondents from each school."
And when the dust settled/the scores were all calculated, Bishop's came in at number two in the nation.
Actually, Quebec as a whole was pretty well represented in Maclean's Top 20 Party Schools list. Université de Sherbrooke, UQAM, and UdeM all made the top ten, with Concordia and McGill managing to place in the rankings, too.
