A high school senior comes to visit Port Chester (aka Politically Correct U) for the weekend, and the admissions department mistakenly sets him up to stay with Droz, a seven year student and party-animal who lives in The Pit, the most offensive house on campus. After trying to pawn the pre-freshman off on his house mate, Droz sets off on his normal daily activities including disrupting a political protest by throwing meat at a group of vegan protesters. The President of the University then receives a number of complaints, and with the help of her lackey, she may finally have the power to kick Droz's house off campus. But the Pit throws an all-campus rager where George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic performs, and everything might turn out alright if the various political groups can forget their protests for one night and just have fun together.

I think he was referring to his, ahh, phallus.

You participated in a phallus-naming?

This film was more than the sum of it's parts. It included the proto-modern gross out comedy, the college comedy, the P.C. comedy of errors, and the fish out of water. But still, thanks to smooth transitions, an even script and likable characters, it managed to be funnier, better than most moviegoers could have expected it to be.
The main thing is that the cast was all so unknown at that point, that they seemed happy to be working, but were professional enough that they didn't make overzealous rookie mistakes. Basically, they knew that they were making a funny, small movie, and didn't push it. And that kind of restraint is admirable/refreshing, considering how many movies we're surrounded with now that are box office obsessed.
"PCU," much like "Dead Man On Campus" a few years later, was content to entertain. And so it did.
