QUIZ: How well do you know these classic college movies?


Brought to you by Iarnród Éireann

If you get more than eight right, you’ll have earned an MA in College Movie Trivia.

Now that we’re looking down the barrel of semester two, we got to thinking about some of Hollywood’s depictions of college life. From the crazy parties in Bad Neighbours (2014) to backstabbing geniuses in The Social Network (2010), they probably don’t reflect the experience of your average Irish student.

The vast majority of the time, movies make college out to be the best place on earth. We’re sure that plenty of you would agree with that, but we’re yet to experience a frat party like the ones we’ve seen in movies.

Maybe we just didn’t go to any of these cool colleges in Ireland where all this kind of stuff goes down.

How well do you know these classic college movies?

There has been no shortage of classic college movies over the years, be it a comedy, drama or thriller. College movies have helped bring us some of our most famous stars, like Ryan Reynolds with Van Wilder (2002) and Dustin Hoffman with The Graduate (1967).

Whether you’re still in college or if it’s been 10 years since you left, there’s a good chance you’ve seen most of these classics. It’s time to put your knowledge to the test, and see if you deserve the MA in College Movies.

College life might not always be like the movies, but Iarnród Éireann wants to help make it a lot more comfortable. With exclusive student discounts across all routes, home is never far away.
