Most religious students? BYU rules
Break out the sparkling grape juice.
LDS Church-owned Brigham Young University has earned the top spot in a recent survey conducted by The Princeton Review
as America's No. 1 college for "most religious students."
It's a distinction the Provo school hasn't always achieved, being beaten out in 2009 by Thomas Aquinas College, a a Catholic-affiliated campus in Southern California.
In related news, BYU also ranked third on the list for most "LGBT-Unfriendly," ninth for "most conservative students," and fourth for "Don't Inhale" (the opposite of "Reefer Madness").
BYU is also No. 1 for America's "Scotch and Soda, Hold the Scotch," schools and No. 1 for "Got Milk?" schools (the opposite of "Lots of Beer"). This is the 14th straight year BYU has earned the top spot in rankings of student sobriety.
