(WJLA) - Party on, Terps.

The University of Maryland in College Park has been named the 10th best party school in the United States by Playboy, the magazine announced Wednesday.

Playboy, which has been ranking party schools since January of 1987, uses a number of factors to determine its top party schools. They include information from the National Center for Education Statistics, the U.S. Economic Census, the NCAA and its social media community.

West Virginia University came in as the nation's top party school for the first time this year, dethroning last year's champion, the University of Virginia. The Charlottesville school didn't even make the top 10 this year.
