Trivia
James Cromwell has said that when he came up with the nerd laugh, that the other actors imitated, he realized while driving home from the studio on the first day of production it was his ex wife's laugh.

Goofs
While Gilbert and Louis are carrying the trunk towards their dorms, just before the two bikes crash into each other, the shadow of the camera and cameraman appear on the road.

When Coach Harris lectures the jocks following losing at the homecoming carnival, behind him is a blue wall with text reading "Only the strong shall survive" and a door that reads "COACH HARRIS." But when the Alpha Betas run out of the locker room, the blue wall has become white and there is no writing on it.
Share this
During the Lambda/Omega Mu song, when Lamar is singing, Poindexter can be seen "bumping" to the music (going up on their toes) out of time with the others. Possibly deliberate since he is shown to be uncoordinated throughout the film.
