Brief Synopsis

Three freshman students embark on their first semester at fictitious Columbus University, where, in addition to normal adolescent problems, they're also confronted with serious prejudice, intolerance, racism and sexism among the student body. Former high school track star, Malik, learns that as long as he keeps winning races the university will support him, but as far as his academic life is concerned, they don't care a bit whether he learns anything at college or not. Kristin Conner, a middle-class white girl from Orange County, discovers that she is ill-prepared for college life and in matters sexual she finds that the male students don't always accept "no" for an answer. She also finds that her own sexual proclivity is not as clear-cut as she'd always imagined. Remy, a quiet kid from Idaho who has no social skills, turns to the only group who'll have him--the skinheads. He's so grateful for their acceptance that he finds he'll do anything to stay in their good graces.
