Campus comedy with musical interludes, about a backward pupil, Gracie Alden, who by an ingenious system of cheating developed by her tutor Bud Brady, inherits Alden College. She runs the college chaotically for a while, with crazy staff (such as the self-styled Mademoiselle Theresa Theresa, Professor of Practical Romance) and no entrance exams, but things return to normal when Gracie falls in love with a woman-fearing benefactor and abandons it.
