Mostly Brainless Comedy but Insightful Theme Hidden Within
The whole bogus college was an amusing idea, but obviously he should have just come clean to his parents. A lot was just wild partying and dumb people but the overarching message was a good one. Not the lying part, but the part about how learning shouldn't be all about grades and tests, but personal growth and development. The criticism that many colleges don't foster that sense of intrinsic passion of learning is legitimate. I would talk about that theme in raising questions such as "How can colleges better foster that sense of personal growth in learning?" and "What would you find to be important qualities and values in a good college?" I will note, however, that there is strong swearing at times, but not derogatory toward anyone usually. Part of the cause is the acronym for the college :) I also like how the main character takes charge. I feel he is intelligent on the inside and he really gets to shine in the leadership role of inspiring all of the students.
