The chancellor of Syracuse University says his college's ranking as the nation's top party school is a "wake-up call" for change.
    
In a message posted on the university's website Tuesday and emailed to students, staff and alumni, Kent Syverud says being designated The Princeton Review's No. 1 party school isn't a good thing for a school to be labeled.
    
Syverud says Syracuse alumni, students and faculty like to have a good time, but they didn't pour their lives into building the university "primarily to create a party."
    
The chancellor says Monday's release of The Princeton Review's rankings serves as a wake-up call for working on two things: Enhancing awareness of Syracuse's academic excellence and paying more attention to activities - parties included - that "get in the way of students succeeding."
