Best College Movies Social Network
It’s the time of year when college freshmen are packing their cars, waving their good-byes, buying their textbooks, and learning their way around campus. If you’re feeling the school spirit, join me on this cinematic jaunt through the top ten all-time best college movies. This list comprises the classic movies that capture collegiate life. With that goal in mind, only movies that are primarily set on campus have made this list—hence no movies that focus on the summer before college like The Graduate or Breaking Away. Likewise, I stayed away from movies that center on a campus competition. Flicks like Pitch Perfect and Drumline may perfectly capture the college experience of singers or drummers, but for most people the university experience is more broad than a single club or sport. I think the ten movies below do the best job conveying what college is like. But hey, I matriculated many years ago, so what do I know? Maybe college these days is more like The Hunger Games. If I got it all wrong, let me know in the comments.
