Daily Herald report

Wheaton College was named the No. 2 "stone-cold sober" school in the country, behind Brigham Young University, by The Princeton Review's nationwide survey of 130,000 students.

In contrast, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was named the No. 5 party school in the country. The top party ranking went to Syracuse.

Wheaton College, a private, four-year liberal arts school, was established in 1860.

The college's website lists a strong foundation in moral virtue and whole person development among the instrumental benefits as the value of a Wheaton education.

The school enrolls 2,400 undergraduates and 550 graduate students and has more than 200 faculty members. Famous alumni include the Rev. Billy Graham and former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.
