For many, college is a time to party. But, these schools prove that you can still gain a great education while observing a sober lifestyle.

Many of the schools are focused on faith or discipline, putting rigorous academics where they should be: at the forefront of a college education.

The Princeton Review ranks pretty much everything when it comes to college – from student life to political agendas.

The results are derived from surveying students on a school’s academics, administration, student body and campus life to launch their annual rankings, so that you always know what’s happening on campus.

Check out the Princeton Review’s top sober school rankings for 2013-14:

1. Brigham Young University
Provo, UT

This private school is about as dry as they come. Established in 1875, the university focuses on integrating academics with faith and is a part of the Church Education System.

Slightly more than 31,000 students attend this school, which is sponsored The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

With an average GPA of 3.79, we’re thinking that the sober culture definitely adds to students’ smarts!
