Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) and Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes) get an unsettling taste of university life in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. Obsessed about their futures, uptight mom Helen (voice of Wendy Hoopes) forces her daughters to take college-prep courses. She also arranges to accompany them on a tour of her own alma mater, Middleton. Out-of-it dad Jake (voice of Julian Rebolledo) soon wanders over to fraternity row, where he tries pathetically to recapture his college coolness. Meanwhile, Quinn, too, immerses herself in the Greek system, and the frat boys seem much more eager to interact with her than with Jake. Jolted out of her own misty collegiate reverie by the reality of campus mating rituals, Helen goes on a rampage to save Quinn from the keg partyers. Meanwhile, Daria experiences the depressing reality of much of college life as she watches the boob tube, checks out the campus employment opportunities, and ends up writing term papers for cash -- all while supposedly under the supervision of tour guide Heather. Eventually, the entire Morgendorffer clan receives the boot when the administration gets wind of Daria and Quinn's non-parentally supervised activities. College solicitations soon begin to arrive for Quinn, who's ecstatic, but their dubious nature is obvious to everyone else.
