FAU Ranked 31st on Annual Trojan Condoms Study

College students have a lot of sex. This much you already knew.

But what you might not have known is that they're being smart about it. Especially here in Florida.

Safe sex awwriiight!!

Trojan Condoms did their annual rankings how healthy college students' sex life is on 141 U.S. colleges and universities.

And, good news FAU! You went from being ranked 53rd to 31st in the nation!

This is the seventh annual study by Trojan, conducted by Sperling's Best Places, and base their rankings on the amount of sexual health information and resources available on each campus.

There's like free condoms in the book store, bro.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign took the top spot, dethroning last year's champ, Columbia University.

Interestingly enough, Ivy League schools dominated the top 10, with Brown University, Princeton, and Yale coming strong to the top.


Meanwhile, Chicago State, Troy State University, Providence College, Brigham Young University and U.S. Air Force Academy, make up the bottom five.

Brigham Young we get (MORMONS!). And the Air Force Academy, we guess.

But Providence? It's in Rhode Island! Which is neither a road, nor an island. There's gotta be more to life there than smoking weed and walking from one end of the state to the other.

Oh wait. It's a Catholic school.

As you were.

Anyway, FAU moved up 22 spots from the 2011 rankings, making the biggest jump among Florida colleges. FIU moved up 20 spots, finishing 56. Meanwhile, the University of Miami dropped two spots to number 61.
