Summary, etc.:
In 1962, Larry Kroger and Kent Dorfman are freshman in college. They want to join a fraternity. After visiting several, including the snobby Omega house, they come to a Delta house pledge party. Here they meet the handsome, but compulsive womanizer Otter, his best friend Boone, Boone's girlfriend Katy, the daring thrill-seeker D-Day, the ever responsible Hoover, and slacker Bluto. They are accepted into the fraternity and join in on the wild toga parties, road trips, and practical jokes. But Dean Wormer is determined to have Delta kicked off campus and its members expelled. He enlists the help of Omega house and its leaders Doug Neidermyer and Greg Marmalard and new pledge Chip Diller. Delta is not willing to go away quietly.
