I scared you!

No, you didn't.


Remember our field trip rules, everyone.

Uh, no pushing, no biting,

and no fire breathing!

What did I just say?

Eighteen, nineteen...

Okay, we're missing one.

Who are we missing?

Oh. Mike Wazowski.

Thanks, Joe.

Good luck finishing

your crossword puzzle.

Sorry, Michael.

I didn't see you.

That's okay.

When I was on the bus,

I found a nickel!

I wish I had pockets.

Okay, everyone, partner up.

Get your field trip buddy.

Jeremy! You and me?

Okay, no biggie.

Hailey? No?

Pairing up with Claire?

Great choice.

She's a good egg.


Mike? Wazowski?

We car-pool?

- We're cousins.

- Hey!

Okay. Good catching up.

Well, Michael, it looks like

it's you and me again.

Come on, Karen.

We're falling behind.

Please don't call me Karen.

Now, stay close together.

We're entering

a very dangerous area.

Welcome to the Scare Floor.


This is where we collect the Scream Energy

to power our whole world.

And can anyone tell me whose job

it is to go get that scream?


That's right!

Now, which one of you can

give me the scariest roar?

Me, me, me!

Oh! Sir! Right here!

Little green guy,

two o'clock!

No, it's like this.

Hey, guys, watch this one.

Hey, I got a really good...



Well, hey there, kids.

Are you on a tour with your school?

- Yeah!

- Yes.

We're here to learn

about Scream Energy

and what it takes

to be a Scarer.

Well, hey, you're in luck,

because I just happen to be a Scarer.

I learned everything

I know from my school,

Monsters University.


It's the best

Scaring School there is.

You wish!

Fear Tech's the best.

Okay. You guys

watch us and tell me

which school's the best.

All right?

MU is.

Let's go, everybody!

West coast coming onli.

Scarers coming o.


Stop right there.

Don't cross over

that safety line.

Human children

are extremely toxic.

Look at that!

Whoa! Hey, guys,

watch the eye! Ow!

Look at that! It's amazing!

I know!

- Wow!

- Excuse me. Fellas.

How about we do

tallest in the back?

Look, he's going to

do a real scare!

Cool. I want to

be a Scarer.

Yeah. Me, too.

Come on, guys.

I want to see.

Out of the way, Wazowski.

You don't belong

on a Scare Floor.

Brian! Do not step

over the line.

Mrs. Graves,

Michael went over the line.



I told you. He's fine.


I thought I heard something.


Are you okay?

You could have gotten hurt!

I don't understand

how this could happen!

That was real dangerous, kid.

I didn't even know you were in there.

Wow. I didn't even know

you were in there.

Not bad, kid.

Michael, what do you have

to say for yourself?

How do I become a Scarer?

Monsters University!

Anybody getting off?

Well, everyone,

I don't mean to get emotional,

but everything in my life

has led to this moment.

Let it not be just the

beginning of my dream

but the beginning

of all of our dreams.

Gladys, promise me

you'll keep auditioning.

Marie, Mr. Right is

out there somewhere.

Phil, keep using the ointment

till that thing goes away.

I wish you all the best.

Thank you all so much!

I'm welling up with tears.

Now, get off.

Hello. How are you doing?



Stroke! Stroke!

Come on,

put all you have into it!

Stroke! Stroke!

Okay! First thing on

my list, get registered.

Hey there, freshman.

I'm Jay the R.A.,

and I'm here to say that

registration is thataway!

Okay, Jay.

Have a great first day.

Hey, I'm Kay!

Here's your orientation packet.

Thanks, Kay.

You can drop your bags off here

and get your

picture taken with Trey.

Say hooray!


I can't believe it.

I'm officially

a college student!

Okay, everyone, I'm Fay,

and I'll be giving you your

orientation tour on this perfect day!

Here are the labs

where students learn

to design and build the

doors to the human world.

Looks like the professor

is about to test a door!

The MU cafeteria serves a full buffet,

three meals a day.

I personally believe we have some

of the best chefs in the world.

Oh! Yeah!


The campus offers

a wide variety of majors,

but the crown jewel of MU

is the Scaring School.

Welcome to the debate team.

We're happy to have you.

I disagree for

the following reasons.

True happiness is a

theoretical construct...

Hey there! Keep

your eye on the sky

at the astronomy club!

Hey, hey, hey! Come

join the improv club.

You'll wish you were a...

Never... Always...

Ah, dang it!

MU's Greek Council.

We sponsor the annual Scare Games.

The Scare what now?

The Scare Games!

A super-intense

Scaring competition!

They're crazy dangerous,

so anything could happen.

A bunch of guys went

to the hospital last year!

You could totally die.

And it's worth it.

You get a chance to prove

that you are the best!


Wazowski, Room 319.

You know, your roommate

is a Scaring major, too.

"Hello, I'm your roommate."

Oh, that's too bland.

Don't force it.

Just let it happen.

Your lifelong best friend

is right behind this door.

Hey there.

I'm your roomie.

Name's Randy Boggs.

Scaring major.


Mike Wazowski, Scaring major.

I can tell we're going

to be best chums, Mike.

Take whichever bed you want.

I wanted you to

have first dibs.


You just disappeared.

Sorry. If I do that in Scaring class,
