* DeanBitterman: Ms. Garcia-Thompson. Not only does she micromanage everything with the school, but she's also pushing a "cultural sensitivity" agenda that borders on extremism (she discusses giving an entire building to the "Department of Bisexual Asian Studies." But, who goes? The Math Department or the Hockey team?). Her extremism is to the point that her bosses are looking for an excuse to get rid of her.

* APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy: The Pit invokes this trope by advertising the party with the just-decided-on name of their band: "Everyone Gets Laid". It at least sent the freshmen running there.

Tom is a pre-freshman having a visit to Port Chester University before he attends it properly. HilarityEnsues as he manages to piss off half the campus, with his only safety between two groups, which themselves hate each other: The groups are Balls and Shaft, a right-wing fraternity that went underground after fraternities were banned from the school, and The Pit, a group that split off from Balls and Shaft and just wants to goof around (and to get around the ban, it doesn't call itself a fraternity).

* BatmanGambit / XanatosGambit: The plan to get rid of The Pit was to slap them with all the unpaid bills for their building [[spoiler:and anticipating that Droz would suggest a wild party to raise the money. This would cause loads of complaints from the PC students, thus giving enough reason to shut down The Pit even if the money was raised in time]]. Its the former for being based on what The Pit residents would do and the latter for benefiting whether they did it or not.
