The Phi Epsilon Nu fraternity house in the film is known as the Johnson mansion, and in 1929 it was purchased for use as a fraternity on the Rutgers University campus.  It was the Delta Phi house at the time the movie was filmed there, but in 2002 it became the Sigma Phi Epsilon house, and then the Phi Sigma Sigma house in 2010.

Just like in the film, Wendy’s sorority house was located across the street at 26 Union Street.  It had been the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity since 1947, but in 1992 the house burned to the ground.  Arson was suspected, but no one was ever caught.

  1. I just rewatched this movie for the first time earlier this year. It's not bad. I also just found out a friend of mine was roommates in college with one of the stars of the movie! So much Pledge Night happening this year! It's in the air!

  2. I love Pledge Night! It's kind of like Night Of The Demons with a male Angela.

    Do you remember which actor your friend was roommates with?
