The Princeton Review has released another list of the most religious college campuses in the country.

In related news, BYU also ranked third on the list for most “LGBT-Unfriendly,” ninth for “most conservative students,” and fourth for “Don’t Inhale” (the opposite of “Reefer Madness”).

BYU is also No. 1 for America’s “Scotch and Soda, Hold the Scotch,” schools and No. 1 for “Got Milk?” schools (the opposite of “Lots of Beer”). This is the 14th straight year BYU has earned the top spot in rankings of student sobriety.

Those are some, um, interesting lists. Just don’t call them nerds.
