    A Playboy party is coming April 22.

    The University of Texas at Austin has been named the No. 1 Party School in America by Playboy Magazine.

    The honor was bestowed upon the school by Playboy editors, with input from campus representatives, models, photographers and students.

    With the honor, Playboy plans to invite all UT students to the Playboy mansion to celebrate. I'm kidding, of course.  But, Playboy does plan to head to Austin April 22, where they will host a party honoring the school's "accomplishment."

    The bash will take place at a bar near campus where Playmates and Playboy models can mingle with students. In addition to the Austin party, Playboy is planning a bonus party in Tempe, Ariz., to honor Arizona State University for their fifth appearance on the list.

    Many of the schools who fell short in the "Party School" category excelled in other areas.  Baylor won for "Hottest College Girlfriend" with an assist from UT's Colt McCoy.  The award went to Baylor Bear Rachel Glandorf who is now engaged to McCoy.  See a complete listing here.

    UT and Austin have received many accolades lately, including being named one of the top college sports towns in March, and the most valuable college team last December.
