College! It is the greatest and worst time ever, all rolled up into a hopeful four, but likely five-to-nine year stretch. You can’t just go to school anymore, ya know? You gotta get the undergraduate degree, then the graduate degree, then another, then a doctorate in something completely unrelated that takes the least amount of time so you can have that Ph.D next to your name! Is it worth it? We’ll let the following list be your guide, or your lure back to the wonderful world of university. Here are 10 of the best movies ever made, set on, or around, a college campus.
10. Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
Back in the day, the Greek system at most universities was a huge deal. It was elite. People who didn’t “qualify” felt marginalized, thus necessitating the age of college films featuring fraternities at war, or the marginalized fraternity willing to accept anyone. Revenge of the Nerds is a perfect example of this formula—a stellar ensemble cast of social rejects, in attempt to open their own fraternal chapter, after being socially rejected by the cool fraternities on campus. They eventually became the Adams College chapter of Lambda Lambda Lambda, a traditionally all-black fraternity, and plot a delightful scheme of revenge against their intramural foes. They then scheme to win the annual big-man-on-campus fraternal competition to stake claim in the Adams College influence. If you’re ever looking to watch something with a definitive 1980s vibe, look no further than Revenge of the Nerds.http://www.sky.com/tv/movie/revenge-of-the-nerds-1984 Source: Sky.com
