Factual errors 

Mr. Hundert, a pedantic and demanding classics professor, would be unlikely to make the error of saying that Caesar's army was "comprised of" two legions. He would have said that Caesar's army comprised two legions, or that two legions composed Caesar's army, or that Caesar's army was composed of two legions. A trivial error, perhaps, but out of character nonetheless.

Miscellaneous 

When the students are caught on the brink of skinny-dipping, one of the nuns is wearing a wimple (traditional headgear and veil) together with a habit that has an above-the-knee skirt. You would never see a nun wearing such a combination.
When the girls are removing their shirts to go skinny dipping, a Victoria's Secret Body by Victoria bra is revealed, a bra from the time the film was made, not the time period it was set in.
