Before 2 States lands up in theatres, we look back at movies celebrating college romance.

Abhishek Varman's upcoming film 2 States, based on Chetan Bhagat's bestselling 2009 book of the same name and starring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, is a story of two college students who meet on the campus, fall in love and embark on the arduous task called 'meet the parents.'

But before that happens, here's a look at the BEST college romances we have seen over the years.
