This outrageous comedy captures the story of a group of B-level frat boys who must fight for their existence as a fraternity at Faber College in the face of the prestigious Omegas.

Unable to gain acceptance at the snootier fraternities, the motley crew, bent on disrupting the well-starched status quo, form the Deltas. They engage in various illegalities that land them in hot water and their exploits eventually cause Dean Wormer (John Vernon) to enlist Omega president Greg Marmalard (James Daughton) to drive the Deltas out of the college.

New Delta recruits Larry (Tom Hulce) and Kent (Stephen Furst), along with the rest of the Delta boys, find themselves stripped of their frat identities. Their troubles don’t stop there, and they have to find a way to win back what they lost.
