Summary
At Adams College, the jocks rule the school from their house on high, the Alpha Beta fraternity. So when a group of socially-challenged misfits try to go Greek, they are immediately rejected by every house on campus. Deciding to start their own fraternity, the nerds soon find themselves in a battle royale as the Alpha Betas try to crush their new rivals
