This year, Playboy named Ohio University the top party school in the nation. The school is situated in the tiny town of Athens, Ohio, and students say there isn’t much to do besides party and study. But who pays the price for this “work hard, play hard” lifestyle?
Fusion traveled to Athens and spent a weekend on campus to learn more about its drinking culture. In the first act of our original special Blackout: 48 Hours at America’s #1 Party School, we meet the folks behind the town’s business of booze—and reveal the numbers that explain how college towns like Athens thrive.
