Description: Van Wilder might be starting his seventh year at Coolidge College, but graduation is the furthest thing from his mind. Armed with a personal assistant and a coterie of admirers, Van has reached the status of living legend on campus, throwing bashes that make geeks popular, raising money for charity and generally "inspiring the uninspired." But when Van's father refuses to pay any more of his son's tuition bills, Van turns party planning into a business in order to continue living in undergraduate bliss. As the cash begins to roll in, Van catches the eye of student journalist Gwen Pearson, who is determined to expose the truth about Van. What begins as a clash of wills, however, soon leads to unexpected romance as Van and Gwen both realize they have a lot to learn from each other. The only problem: Gwen's self-obsessed, frat house boyfriend, Richard, who's determined, at any cost, to put a stop to Van's rule as campus king.
