By the time he made this one-reel Lubin comedy, Oliver Hardy had proved to be one of the studio's more valuable actors. He stars in this picture, and Raymond McKee does a turn in drag. College is nothing but a full-time party for Jack (Hardy) and his pals Dick (McKee) and Tom (Ben Walker). Jack's father (Ed Lawrence) gets wind of his son's spendthrift habits and threatens to cut off his funds. But when the father comes to the campus to investigate, Jack and his friends have cooked up a nasty scheme. Jack pretends to be so busy studying that he doesn't have time to go out with his father. The father goes out for a walk and runs into Dick, who has dressed up as a woman. Dick flirts outrageously with the father and goes on a luncheon date with him. But when the father walks him home, Tom, playing the jealous husband, causes a ruckus. The father buys his way out of the situation and leaves. Jack, Dick, and Tom have a celebration with the money.
