These movies paint an entertaining, if not always realistic, picture of living on campus. Moving into student housing can be an exciting event in anyone’s life. It’s no wonder that so many movies have portrayed the experience. Check out these five movie dorms before you make the move yourself.
Pitch Perfect (2012)
Filmed on Louisiana State University’s campus, Pitch Perfect puts Beca in the Barden Bellas right before their big acapella competition. Beca lives on-campus in one of the university dorms, for which real Pentagon was the stand-in. If you think Beca’s dorm is standard, you’re in for a surprise. Since the average student is underaged, many campuses restrict or forbid alcohol consumption. You can still have a swell time by getting involved with student groups that sing and enjoy other activities.
Animal House (1978)
Considered in most respects to be the definitive college movie, Animal House tells about Delta Tau Chi fraternity’s decision to stick it to the Dean and put on a huge homecoming parade that no one will ever forget. Animal House captures the fun spirit and fast friendships roommates often form over the course of living together.
