    It wasn't very realistic. The supposed Des Moines airport at the beginning was fake. And the ISU frat boys had sex with girls who weren't unconscious.

    I can't believe this thread made it to post #4 before someone got off a cheap shot about frats. You guys are slipping.

    +1 On spotting the Western Airlines ticketing counter at DSM Airport.

    -1 On promoting stereotypes about fraternities.

    No. It doesn't work actually.

    A fraternity with behavioral problems gets booted off campus and is held accountable as a whole.

    Problematic football programs get excuses about their actions as "typical college behavior" that "can't be overseen around the clock," and players are deemed as acting as individuals.

    If they are official problems. Some are experienced privately and promote said negative stereotype.

    As a former Fraternity member, I can tell you that you're blowing smoke. I reported such an incident at our alma mater and the VP of Greek Affairs told me to take a long walk off a short pier.

    Now, that statement holds true if 4 of your members are actually prosecuted for sexual assault....

    Tim Robbins as Mother. Sheree J. Wilson looked great.

    Fraternity Vacation is a 1985 low-budget American sex comedy starring Stephen Geoffreys as a nerdy pledge to the Theta Pi Gamma fraternity at Iowa State, with Tim Robbins and Leigh McCloskey as egregious Theta Pi Gamma frat boys (or, as they are known to their Iowa State frat rivals, "Theta Pigs"). On spring break in Palm Springs California, several boys compete for the affections of a sophisticated co-ed, Sheree J. Wilson.

    And I can tell you as a current greek student that greek affairs does the opposite. As of late the entire greek community has become much more restrictive and conservative (again, from personal experience). For every stereotype there is someone that will negatively reinforce it, I realize that. But I've seen many more who don't fit the stereotype.
