Mainstream Media Portrays College as a Place to Get Drunk With Frat Boys

Posted by thelanetrain on July 22, 2008

This is the promotional poster for the upcoming movie College.  The premise is that three high school seniors go to visit a college for the weekend and run into all sorts of wicked awesome hijinks.  They have completely original experiences, like going to a wild blowout frat party, scoring with hot sorority girls, getting really drunk, and as the picture implies, ending up praying to the porcelain god.  I’m not sure if this is based off the success of Greek, the ABC Family dramadey that mixes substance with substance abuse (and in my opinion, provides a slightly more realistic view of what college actually is), but its a nice message to send to high schoolers and their parents about the college experience.  The $40,000 annual tuition will go towards a year of boozing, schmoozing, and puking up SoCo shots with the boys of Theta Kappa something or another…

In the upcoming sequel, the kids will do something even crazier…team up with a tenured professor to conduct science research!  Oh those crazy college kids!
