Posted: Friday, September 08, 2000

NEW YORK (AP) -- In the opinion of 59,000 students who rated campus life at their own schools, the nation's most devout campus is Wheaton College, an evangelical institution in Illinois, followed by Brigham Young University (Mormon), the University of Dallas (Roman Catholic), Grove City College (Presbyterian) and Baylor University (Baptist).

So reports the latest edition of ''The Best 331 Colleges'' from Princeton Review, which includes the students' evaluations and more conventional data.

Wheaton was ranked lowest in consumption of hard liquor and beer, and just behind Grove City on least marijuana use.

The guidebook claims the least prayerful student bodies are at Vassar, Lewis and Clark, Reed, Macalaster, Wesleyan and Bard.
