UNH, Northeastern Top ‘Druggiest Colleges’ List

BOSTON (CBS) – It’s a list that makes parents and college administrators cringe.

The University of New Hampshire has been ranked number one in the Daily Beast’s ranking of the “Druggiest Colleges” in America.

Northeastern was number two.

WBZ Radio’s Kim Tunnicliffe reports from Northeastern

The web site compiled the list with information from other web sites, as well as from the federal government.

Northeastern released a statement about their ranking. “It’s hard to take seriously a ranking that miscounts our enrollment by more than 5,000 students. Fortunately, this ranking has not been taken seriously by our students or anyone else who knows Northeastern.”

WBZ-TV’s Kate Merrill reports.

Also on the list are Williams College at number 10, UMass at 44, and Hampshire College at 50.
