    The student bodies for some American colleges have reputations for never leaving the library.  Other schools are known to have a work hard, party harder ethic.

    Then there are the schools on Princeton Review's list, "Students Study the Least."

    Three area schools have made the top 20 of this less-than distinguished list.

    At number 17, James Madison University of Harrisonburg, Virginia.  The total enrollment for the public college is 17,657, and according to the Princeton Review, many of those students don't do that much homework.

    At number 10 on the list, the University of Maryland.  You had to be a decent student to become a Terp - the average incoming GPA is now 3.98.  But somehow, the charms of College Park manage to draw University of Maryland's students away from the books.

    Nearly at the top of the list, Salisbury University ranks number 2 in the slacking scholar list.  Princeton Review calls Salisbury one of the best northeastern colleges, but it's also on the lists "Election, What Election?" and "This is a Library?"

    Princeton Review says it compiles its lists through student surveys.
