Starring Harold Lloyd, this comedy sparked a craze for college films that lasted well beyond the 1920s. Featuring live accompaniment on the mighty Wurlitzer organ!

Harold Lamb is so excited about going to college that he has been working to earn spending money, practicing college yells, and giving himself a special nickname, adapted from a movie he saw. When he arrives at Tate University, he soon becomes the target of practical jokes and ridicule, unfortunately exacerbated by his special nickname. With the help of his friend Peggy, who is in love with him, he changes his tune about school popularity and begins to focus on more important aspects of his college career.
