Set at the fictional Cyprus-Rhodes University in Ohio, the series focuses on the fraternity ambitions of Rusty Cartwright, a HollywoodNerd fresh out of highschool with dreams of fitting in at school and having a 'real college experience', while also being a member of the Honors Engineering program and pursuing a degree in [[WeirdScience Polymer Science]]. The series begins on his [[FishOutOfWater first day at school]] and ends during his junior year, exploring the goings-on of his friends and classmates, as well as his relationship with his CoolBigSis, Casey [[note]](played by KelseyGrammer's daughter, Spencer Greammer)[[/note]]. Unlike many teen dramas on nowadays, it's not really a drama; College/Greek life isn't treated as a matter of life or death (usually), and some "serious" issues - such as Betsy's alcoholism - are even played for laughs.
