A college freshman, Jeff East, tries out for a fraternity but one of their hazings gets out of control. When he and another pledge (Charlie Martin Smith) are out in the freezing mountains, wearing only their underwear, his friend falls off a ledge and breaks his leg. Unable to move him, East must go for help-but it's too late. When the frat boys return they find the guy frozen as a turkey. The fraternity convinces him that the best thing to do is pretend the whole incident didn't happen or else they'd all get in trouble with the police. So, for a week he does everything he can to make it seem like the dead guy is still attending classes and submitting papers, not to mention trying not to freak out from all the pressure of this unpleasant situation. To steer the blame away from the Delta Frat they dress the corpse up in a ski outfit and drop him off at the bottom of a ski slope, a seeming victim of an accident. When the funeral happens and everyone is lining up for the final viewing the dead pledge opens his eyes and rises slowly, like a zombie, while the other guy's eyes keep getting larger. He dead man finally speaks-'Welcome to the Deltas!'. It was all a fraternity Joke.
