Mifflin Street Block Party at Wisconsin-Madison

Mifflin Street Block Party at Wisconsin-Madison You know Wisconsin-Madison is a huge party school when their Mifflin Street Block Party is known as one of the craziest college parties in the nation. Every year around finals week, thousands of Wisconsin students take to the streets to blow off some steam. While this might not sound like the craziest party ever, around 20,000 student partake and both the cops and school try to prevent it from happening every year with no success. It is one of the largest block parties in the nation and it probably won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

Little 500 at Indiana University

Little 500 at Indiana University What other school could turn a simple bike race into a full week of outrageous parties? Indiana’s Little 500 week includes everything from slip’n sides, to frat parties, to live concerts. Indiana students take on this week with a no holds barred attitude and most of them take this week as an excuse to go absolutely crazy. But hey, you’re only a college student once.

Indiana University’s Little 500 is a unique event that takes place annually in April. The event is a 500-meter bike race that is modeled after the Indianapolis 500. Teams of four cyclists compete in a series of heats and the winning team is the first to complete 200 laps. The event is not only a sporting competition, but also an entire week of festivities. During the week, students take part in slip’n slides, frat parties, and live concerts. The event has become a tradition at Indiana University, and it is a highlight of the school year for many students. The event is a great way for students to let loose and have fun before the end of the school year.

Veisha at Iowa State

Veisha at Iowa State Iowa State was recently ranked the number 1 party school in the nation, so you can bet they will go crazy during a week long celebration of all Iowa State colleges. Some year they have huge concerts with artists like Goo Goo Dolls or Black Eyed Peas. And some years they choose to riot instead like in 1988, 1992, and 2004.

Mardi Gras at Tulane

Mardi Gras at Tulane Mardi Gras is a national party so you can imagine how insane it gets when it involves college students ready to drink their livers away and earn some beads. Parades, exotic food, and tons of drinking are all typical of Tulane's Mardi Gras celebrations. Most crazy college parties happen at campus schools where the party is contained, but Tulane is in the heart of NOLA, which means unlimited chances to party hard.

4/20 Smoke out at Colorado Boulder

4/20 Smoke out at Colorado Boulder While most of the craziest college parties involve excessive drinking the 4/20 Smoke Out at University of Colorado-Boulder involves a whole new form of being excessive. When 12,000 students decide to light up on a college campus, things can get a little crazy. It is a celebration that even Bob Marley would be proud of.

Palmer Fest at Ohio University

Palmer Fest at Ohio University If having a house catch on fire and a SWAT team is called in is not a qualifier for one of the craziest college parties, I don't know what is. Ohio University is known as a top party school in the nation, so when it comes time to celebrate Palmer Fest, these students pull out all of the stops. It also helps that there is actually no reason for this fest besides the desire to get belligerent.

State Patty’s Day at Penn State

State Patty’s Day at Penn State As a Penn State student, I can personally assure that State Patty’s Day is one of the most insane college parties in the nation. This past year, the school actually paid the bars around $5,000 each to not sell alcohol on State Patty’s Day. But that didn't stop the students. They found tons of other ways to celebrate in green. Even after cops and the school trying to prevent this holiday from happening every year, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

College is a time to let loose and party with your friends. But these craziest college parties take it to a whole new level. Have you been to any of these notorious college parties? Does your school have any party traditions? Why do you think these parties get so wild and over the top?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Generally, I try to not critique a few grammar issues, however, this article appears to have been written quickly.... You have Ohio State listed under Wisconsin-Dells, provide no explanation of what OSU Palmer Fest actually is and for "State Paddy's Fest" you have a photo of girls in Bavarian, Oktoberfest attire.... Not the best I have seen published on here.

Also Kansas State Fake Pattys day is huge. Should've included us, I was disappointed

University of Iowa was ranked the number one party school- not Iowa state! You've stated the wrong facts.
