The Best College Movies Ever

List Criteria: Films about / set in college or featuring university students, classes, dorms, etc.

Any true college student should watch each of these college movies at least once. However we recommend watching each movie several times in order to be able to quote them on command. Some are so classic they're being made into musicals. These are the best college movies ever and they feature things that every college student would understand: booze, ditching class and chasing the opposite sex. These are movies every college student should see at least once. If you are out of college and you miss it, these films about college life may just transport you back to your student days. These are the best college movies ever.

What is your favorite university film? Also be sure to see Ranker's list of All College Movies.
