‘Revenge of the Nerds’ Synopsis
Super nerds and life-long best friends, Lewis Skolnick and Gilbert Lowe, are new freshmen at Adams College to study computer science. When the Alpha Beta fraternity, made up of mostly Adams’ football players, burns down their house, they need a new place to live. Coach Harris suggests the freshmen dorms at temporary living quarters, so that’s where they go.
To accommodate the displaced freshmen, Dean Ulich designates temporarily living space in the gymnasium, and allows the freshmen to rush the fraternities. Of course, Lewis, Gilbert, and several other nerds aren’t fraternity material; only the super pretty and super popular may join. They do use their smarts to get a dilapidated old house on campus, and fix it up to livable conditions.read full summary
