Today is the last day of  school for kids in Lee County. Charlotte and Collier County students got a head start on their summer vacations and are already out. Summer is exciting but it can also be stressful for families that are experiencing food insecurities. The only consistent meals many children get are when they are in school. So what happens when school is out of session for a week or even months? Many students don’t eat. They go hungry. To help, there are organizations offering free summer breakfast and lunch for Lee County students along with others in Southwest Florida children.

Kids eating Free summer breakfast

With school out for summer break, many Lee County students wont get fed a daily breakfast or lunch. However, there is help. This help is offered to kids under 18 across the state of Florida.

Summer Break Spot is a statewide program that provides a variety of meal programs for kids who need good nutrition while they are out of school for the long summer break. Depending on the location, everything from snacks, to lunch, even dinner in some cases is provided. The food is free. At the time of this story, there are about 80 distribution locations planned for Lee County. Organizers often add more food sites as the summer goes on, and also depending on need.

List of Top 50 Party Schools in U.S.

Consider this a public service announcement for all of the seniors in high-school. Our friends over at have published a list of the top 50 party schools in the US. Among the 50 biggest party schools are four schools in the state of Florida. Including one school cracking the top-3. Alumni of these schools will most likely wear this as a badge of honor. Obviously I would not choose a school based solely on the party atmosphere. But if you’re looking for that party atmosphere, or maybe not, then this list can help sway your decision in one way or the other. I’m not entirely sure how came up with the list, but if you click the link you can see most schools have well over 3,000 reviews left by current and former students.

There are a few schools that didn’t make the list that seemed odd to me. UCF in Orlando, Arizona State in Tempe, and East Carolina in Greenville just to name a few. The first two seem to be because they are in larger metro areas and maybe the actual college party scene isn’t as great as the overall party scene. However I have been to Greenville and know the Pirates know how to Party. I’ve taken the list and added a new component; PICTURES. Some of these school’s party scenes are directly tied to the great athletics the schools offer. Others let the partying stand on their own. So with out further adieu, I present the top 50 party schools in the country.

  • 50. LSU

    LSU makes the list based off night games in Death Valley alone.

  • 49. Texas Southern University

    Not gonna lie, this one surprised me.

  • 48. Texas Tech University

    The Red Raiders will be upset they’re this low. There’s nothing else to do in Lubbock other than party.

  • 47. North Carolina A&T University

    Yeah… that looks like they know how to party.

  • 46. Temple University

    Makes sense with the Philly party scene. They’ve also had students in Antarctica on Antarctica. However you say it- they’ve done it.

  • 45. University of Massachusetts Amherst

    Not going to lie… this one surprised me

  • 44. College of Charleston

    Top 50 Party Schools in the U.S. C of C

    The Cistern at the College of Charleston

    Charleston is a great town. It definitely has parts of it that feel like you’re in a small college town. But it also has parts that have the southern charm of a small town. Great food, great music, and great drinks.

  • 43. University of Pennsylvania

    Another school located in the heart of Philadelphia. It’s surprising to see an Ivy League school and partying associated with each other. But good on you Penn students.

  • 42. University of Arizona

    Bear Down Wildcats! Great weather, good sports, and plenty of fun to be had for students in Tucson.

  • 41. Washington State University

    The fact is there isn’t a ton to do in Pullman Washington. You’ve got to find something to do and partying seems to be it for Cougars students.

  • 40. University of Florida

    Great weather, great college town, and a historically great athletic department (although it might be down right now).

  • 39. Lehigh University

    Lehigh is an excellent academic school with a great party scene as well.

  • 38. University of CIncinnati

    Cincinnati is a big metro area, so I knew there would be plenty of bars and restaurants. But the students at UC know how to party with the best of them.

  • 37. University at Albany, SUNY

    I get it. It’s below 40 degrees for most of the year so you got to figure out a way to stay warm. What better way then pack a frat house and let the liquid flow.

  • 36. University of Kansas

    This was the scene after Kansas won the basketball national championship in 2022. Any student base that can create a scene like this has to know a thing or two about partying at an elite level.

  • 35. James Madison University

    JMU has been on the party scene for years. The campus is less than 100 miles from Washington DC, but still remote enough to have the college town feel.

  • 34. Southern Methodist University

    Located in the heart of Dallas, SMU offers the big city lifestyle to their students. It’s a good academic school too.

  • 33. University of Oklahoma

    It’s Oklahoma. They care about football entirely too much, and I mean that as a complement. Look at the student section for home games.

  • 32. University of Michigan- Ann Arbor

    From where I sit, Michigan is the best combination of elite academic school, great sports, and located in a metro while holding onto the college town feel in the country. I’m kind of surprised they aren’t higher on this list.

  • 31. Vanderbilt University

    I mean it’s located in Nashville. It’s one of the best cities in the world in terms of live music and bars. Another spectacular academic school, they’ve got one of the best party scenes in the world just minutes from campus.

  • 30. University of Delaware

    All I knew about UD was the football helmets are very similar to Michigan’s, and Joe Flacco went there. But know I know they can party with the best of them too.

  • 29. Clark Atlanta University

    CAU was founded in just 1988, but like athletics there are inherent advantages based on your location. Being in Atlanta they have a huge advantage just because of their location.

  • 28. University of Dayton

    There’s a theme that schools in Ohio know what they’re doing when it comes to partying.

  • 27. University of Miami

    This one was easy to see coming. They’re in one of the best vacation cities in the world. They’ve got a very good athletic department along with the biggest concerts and professional sporting events in the world. OH yeah- I almost forgot South Beach. It ain’t a college town, but they know how to party in Miami.

  • 26. University of South Carolina

    SEC baby. It just means more.

  • 25. University of Colorado Boulder

    Sure it gets a little cold in the winter. But the weather from April through October is beautiful. Boulder is one of the more underrated college towns in the West.

  • 24. Rutgers University- New Brunswick

    Any student section that shows up in these numbers to support a well below average athletic department knows what they’re doing. Also being in New Jersey, they need to lift their spirits somehow.

  • 23. University of Virginia

    The Hoos students are not just Brainiac’s. They know what they’re doing with a red solo cup in their hands.

  • 22. THE Ohio State University


  • 21. University of Texas - Austin

    The ol’ “Hook ’em Horns”

  • 20. Michigan State University

    The Ferris Buehler reference in the video is nice.

  • 19. Florida A & M University

    Another Florida school.

  • 18. San Diego State University

    They had a good run this year.

  • 17. University Of Iowa

    Since we’re talking basketball…

  • 16. Indiana University

    Food truck Mondays? Genius.

  • 15. Miami University

    The original Miami. In Ohio.

  • 14. Ohio University

    Another Ohio party school, just up the road from Miami.

  • 13. University of Mississippi

    Ole Miss.

  • 12. Penn State

    It gets weird in the Big 10.

  • 11. West Virginia University

    WVU just missed the Top 10.

  • 10. University of Illinois


  • 9. University of Southern California

    USC is always in the Top 10.

  • 8. Syracuse University

    Orange Nation takes the 8 spot.

  • 7. University of Georgia

    That video made me ready for next season.

  • 6. University of Wisconsin

    Another entry from the Big 10.

  • 5. Howard University

    Starting off the Top 4 with Howard U.

  • 4. The University of Alabama

    Big Al making memes.

  • 3. Florida State University

    Our top Florida entry at number 3. The bar scene around the campus is in-sane.

  • 2. Tulane University

    It’s a party school IN a party town.

  • 1. University of California - Santa Barbara

    UCSB takes the top spot.
