PROVO — Brigham Young University ranked No. 1 on a list of 25 universities where "students are both hot and smart."

Business Insider compiled the list based on data from College Prowler, a site where users can review universities. The list also included some comments students made about the schools on College Prowler.

"Everyone at BYU is very attractive; I've yet to see an ugly person here. ... Everyone is very friendly, and it's not uncommon to strike up a conversation with a perfect stranger. BYU is famous for beginning long-lasting relationships and marriages, so dating is greatly encouraged," one comment read.

BYU-Idaho also made the list, ranked at No. 16.

"Both girls and boys, for the most part, are respectful to other classmates and the teachers. They hold themselves up high and seem to be very smart in their schooling," one comment said.

Other universities on the list included Georgetown, Stanford and Yale.
