13 Movie Characters We Would Have Loved to Go to College With

Sure, the weekend can get pretty wild, but can you imagine what college life would be like with these 13 favorite movie characters around? Check out our picks below! 

Elle Woods, Legally Blonde

"I once had to judge a tighty-whitey contest for Lambda Kappa Pi. Trust me, I can handle anything."

Flamboyant and fabulous, it’s hard not to love Elle, and we’re positive this sorority queen would make a great wingwoman at parties. 

Jacob Palmer, Crazy Stupid Love 

"You're sitting there with a Supercuts hair cut, you're getting drunk on watered Vodka Cranberries like a fourteen year old girl and you're wearing a forty four when you should be wearing a forty two regular. Honestly, I don't know if I should help you or I should euthanize you."

Mysterious yet honest, charming yet caring. Let’s just say we wouldn’t mind spotting Gosling’s swoon-worthy character out at the bar every once in a while. 

Bridget Jones, Bridget Jones Diary

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces."

Hysterically insightful when it comes to describing her problems and those of others, Bridget’s quirky life analyses made us want to laugh and cry simultaneously....and something tells us she would be the friend with the best morning-after stories at breakfast. 

Fogell, Superbad

"Chicka chicka yeeeah"

The man that started it all, there’s no way you couldn’t have a great time rolling around with McLovin himself. 

Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s 

"A girl can't read that sort of thing without her lipstick."

The iconic party host, we’re sure a modern day Holly Golightly would flourish in her sorority and would make an incredible social chair. Beautiful, smart and modest; there’s a reason we’re still talking about Hepburn’s unforgettable character more than fifty years after Breakfast at Tiffany’s was released.

Ron Burgundy, Anchorman 

"I'm Ron Burgundy?" 

Hilariously self-absorbed, we would pay good money to sip Scotch and listen to Burgundy’s brilliant observations at a frat party. 

Emma, No Strings Attached 

"Ring ring, it's the pumpkin patch. They want their pumpkins back!" 

Emma taught us that even the most put together girls really don’t have it all together. And after her pumpkin screaming incident in NSA, we’re sure she would make an awesome roommate in college. 

John ‘Bluto’ Blutarsky, Animal House

"TOGA! TOGA!"

Need we say more?

Penny Lane, Almost Famous

"I always tell the girls, never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriosuly, ya never get hurt, ya never get hurt, ya always have fun, and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends."

Truly one-of-a-kind, Penny and her Band-Aids reminded us all that it's okay to live a little more freely. And let's face it, her clothes were to die for. 

The Weasley twins, The Harry Potter series

"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good."

The mischievous, ginger comic relief in the series that defined our childhood, we can only imagine the kind of trouble these twins would get into if Hogwarts had a university. 

Ferris Bueller, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

If Ferris was already this awesome in high school, we can only imagine the shenanigans he would have gotten himself into as an undergrad. And we would have definitely been a major advocate of the lax attendance policies in college. 

Megan, Bridesmaids 

"You feel that steam heat? That's from my undercarriage"

Now honestly, who wouldn’t love to be best friends with the puppy-hoarding straightshooter that stole the show in Bridesmaids? We’re sure she would be a great time at the bar, and we all know she can give a great (although slightly bizarre) pep talk if you’re feeling down. 

Jay Gatsby, The Great Gatsby

"Anyhow he gives large parties and I like large parties. They're so intimate. At small parties there's never any privacy."

Sure, Gatsby himself is a little questionable at times, but can you imagine the parties this guy would throw? We can see Gats as the party-loving, lady-killing President of his fraternity as a college student in today’s world.
