  1. This is a great list. The last few years have been kind of crazy so I’m looking forward to taking it a bit easy this year. We do movie nights on campus and as an RA we can get things started with some of these. Revenge of the Nerds really takes it back!!! Love it!!!

    I’d add Hostel for a thriller night with my study abroad friends, Hoop Dreams or Friday Night Lights for my sports buddies. Lot’s of great moments and memories, can’t wait to revisit some of these! Ah, good times, good times! =)

  2. So glad to see Van Wilder on this list. One of my all-time favorite movies! Although it might make you a little sad since college will never be as fun as it looks in that movie, lol.

  3. I’ve only seen about a 3rd of these, so there are a lot of movies I can look forward to watching. Also, 21 Jumpstreet was hilarious so I’m sure the sequel, 22 Jumpstreet is just as entertaining.
