NYC Has 4 of Princeton Review's Top Sober Schools
They include three City University campuses: City College, Brooklyn College and Queens College
It turns out New York City is a hotbed of sobriety.
The Princeton Review released its college rankings this week, with categories including top party schools, best food and best athletic facilities.
The list of top 20 "stone-cold sober" schools is headed by Utah's Brigham Young University, where Mormon students eschew alcohol. Other sober schools include the U.S. Naval Academy and the church-affiliated Pepperdine University.
Four of the 20 sober schools are in New York City. They include three City University campuses: City College, Brooklyn College and Queens College. The list also includes the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science at Art in Greenwich Village.
City College spokesman Ellis Simon noted that the college's students typically commute to school and have work and family responsibilities.
