Famous frat houses in the movies

In most cases, the frat houses in the movies are fictitious and look nothing like a real frat. In some cases, this is not always the case. Whether real or fake, movies featuring Greek houses have popularized frat houses across the United States. These are some of the most famous Greek houses from the movies that have made frat life so appealing.

Alpha Delta Phi- This Greek house located on the Dartmouth campus has been made famous by the National Lampoon film, Animal House. The film featured John Belushi and Kevin Bacon, as well as several other cast members from Saturday Night Live from 1978. The custom Greek clothing that was made for the film was authentic for the frat house at the time. Many people still buy these custom Greek t-shirts because it reminds them of the movie.

Old School- Old School is a film featuring Will Ferrell, Luke Wilson, and Vince Vaughn. In this movie, three old college friends decide to start their own college fraternity of misfits, retirees, and losers who want the frat experience but nothing more. However, this fraternity is not real throughout the film; Will Ferrell is seen in multiple shots wearing his custom Greek shirts from his royal fraternity he was in when he was in college.

Accepted – This is a movie about a lazy student who was not accepted to any university, so he decides to start his own. The movie features Jonah Hill and Jason Long as best friends who start the fake college where more people were accepted than was intended. In the movie, Jonah’s character is looking for the ordinary college experience where he tries to join the BKE fraternity at Harmon College, but decides that friendship is more important. Throughout the movie, several guys are seen wearing frat clothes that are not only for the fake college but also for the BKE frat house.

Road Trip- Road Trip features Tom Green and Brecken Meyer. In this movie, they both attend Ithaca College while Brecken’s girlfriend goes to Austin University. The night before he decides to send his girlfriend Beth a tape about college life, he makes a sex tape with a sexy girl and accidentally sends it to her. Now they must take a road trip to get the tape before Beth does. In this movie, they end up making a stop at the University of Alabama in one of the all-black frat houses where the entire house is decked out in their custom Greek shirts and other frat clothes.

National Lampoon’s Van Wilder: In this movie, Van Wilder is an energetic guy who has no real desire to drop out of college. He comes out with daddy’s money and feels like he’s the college philanthropist because he does so much for the fraternities, the swim team, and other organizations on campus. Throughout the movie, you can see various frat houses that come to ask for Van Wilder’s help. Some use their custom Greek letters, while others are too nerdy to use something like that.
