双语:美国大学派对哪家强?

The University of Illinois stakes claim to 23 Nobel Prize winners and tech prowess that contributed to the creation of YouTube, Netscape, Java and Yelp.
伊利诺伊大学(University of Illinois)共有23名校友获得诺贝尔奖,该校培养的科技精英们造就了YouTube、Netscape、Java和Yelp公司。

But students at the central Illinois campus don’t just bury their heads in books, they also party — so much so that they’ve earned the top spot on The Princeton Review’s annual list of top party schools in the U.S., the college guide said Monday.
但这所位于伊州中部的大学的学生并不仅仅是埋头苦读,他们同样热衷于派对。《普林斯顿评论》(The Princeton Review)3日宣布,该校在这本大学指南的年度派对大学排行榜中高居榜首。

“Drinking culture is huge here,” according to an unnamed student in the Princeton Review’s 2016 edition of the “The Best 380 Colleges.” The university has about 31,000 undergraduate students.
在《普林斯顿评论》2016年版“最好的380所大学(The Best 380 Colleges)”中,一名不愿提及姓名的学生说道,“这里饮酒文化氛围很浓厚”。该校现有大约31000名本科在校生。

University spokeswoman Robin Kaler was bothered by the No. 1 ranking — a first for the campus, which has been among the list’s top five for years — and said it painted students in a false light.
伊利诺伊大学女发言人罗宾•卡勒(Robin Kaler)很为这个第一名感到烦恼,该校近些年来一直跻身该榜单前五,这还是第一次高居榜首。她说这个排名扭曲了该校学生的形象。

“They are serious, they are hard-working, and to try to present them as being somehow irresponsible is insulting,” she said Monday.
她3日表示:“他们严肃认真、勤勉刻苦,试图将他们刻画为不负责任的人的行为是对他们的侮辱。”

The largest of the parties is an annual day of drinking called Unofficial, a St. Patrick’s Day celebration that was started by a local bar. The event included fatal accidents in 2001 and 2006. The university tries every year to keep the event under control, often beefing up police presence and, two years ago, even asking parents to help them tone down the partying.
伊利诺伊大学最大的派对要属每年的饮酒日,被称作Unofficial,这个派对由当地的一家酒吧为庆祝圣帕特里克节(St. Patrick’s Day)而发起。该活动在2001年和2006年都曾酿成致命事故。校方每年都试图控制活动的局面,经常增加现场的警力,两年前甚至呼吁学生家长帮助他们令派对收敛一些。

The Princeton Review’s publisher says the collection of lists is meant to paint a picture of life on campus at the schools it reviews, using students’ answers to a long series of questions about student life to create profiles, as well as lists for things such as partying, dorm life, sports, political persuasions and more.
《普林斯顿评论》出版商则说,这一系列排行榜意在通过学生的反馈来描绘上榜学校的校园生活。学生们回答了一长串有关学生生活的问题来创建资料以及包括派对、宿舍生活、运动、政治派别等方面的榜单。


“We have such a high regard for each of the 380 schools,” said publisher Robert Franek, whose review is not affiliated with Princeton University. “The University of Illinois, it is an exceptional school.”
《普林斯顿评论》与普林斯顿大学(Princeton University)并无关联。其出版商罗伯特•弗兰尼克(Robert Franek)表示:“我们非常敬重这380所大学,伊利诺伊大学是极为优秀的学校。”

For those who don’t imbibe, the top stone-cold sober school is Brigham Young University (BYU), the private Utah school affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Tops for most religious students? That’s BYU, too.
对于那些不饮酒的学生来说,最滴酒不沾的学校是杨百翰大学(Brigham Young University,BYU)。这所位于犹他州(Utah)的私立大学隶属于耶稣基督后期圣徒教会(Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)。对于最为虔诚的教徒来说首选的大学?还是杨百翰大学。

Looking for the best campus food? Try the small, exclusive Bowdoin College in Maine.
哪所大学食堂最好吃?你可以试试缅因州(Maine)规模精小、录取严格的鲍登学院(Bowdoin College)。

Most satisfied students? Claremont McKenna University, under what one student told the review was “the constantly beaming California sun.”
哪所学校学生满意度最高?克莱蒙麦肯纳学院(Claremont McKenna University)。有位在校生对《普林斯顿评论》提到自己最满意的是“时常沐浴在加利福尼亚灿烂的阳光里”。

Want a job? Go to Clemson University in South Carolina, where students say they’re instantly part of a worldwide network.
想要找工作?那就要去南卡罗来纳州(South Carolina)的克莱姆森大学(Clemson University)就读吧,那里的学生说他们一入校就已经融入全球网络。

The party rankings, like most parties themselves, change over time. The University of Iowa is a former No. 1, but came in at No. 2 this year.
派对排行榜,正如大多派对本身,都会随着时间不停地变化。曾经问鼎榜首的爱荷华大学(University of Iowa)今年位居第二。

Freshmen due in Iowa City this month will find dozens of bars downtown and many house parties awaiting them. But the city has also made it harder for those under 21 to get into bars, and police officers will be patrolling neighborhoods to break up rowdy parties.
即将在本月到爱荷华市(Iowa City)报到的新生会发现市中心有几十个酒吧,还有诸多室内派对等着他们的到来。但同时该城也做出更加严格的规定,严禁21岁以下青少年进入酒吧,警察也会去街区巡逻解散那些嘈杂的派对。

Rounding out the top five party schools are, in order: The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Bucknell University in Pennsylvania and last year’s No. 1, Syracuse University in New York.
其他排在前五名的派对学校依次是:威斯康星大学麦迪逊分校(University of Wisconsin-Madison),宾夕法尼亚州的巴克内尔大学(Bucknell University)以及去年的第一名纽约的雪城大学(Syracuse University)。
