Young Mike Wazowski, who is dreaming of becoming a scarer when he grows up, goes on a tour around Monsters, Inc. during a school field trip. In order to be hired to the factory, he has to attend college first, so 11 years later, Mike is enrolled to Monsters University, where he meets James P. Sullivan. During every semester, Sulley only relies on his natural ability, and one day, during the final exam, Dean Hardscrabble fails him and Mike after breaking open a Scream Can. But in order to save themselves from the consequences they were about to face, they enter the Scare Games, to prove that Mike is scary enough. He and Sulley are in team Oozma Kappa, while their rival team is Roar Omega Roar. In every one of the first four challenges, all of the other teams besides Oozma Kappa and Roar Omega Roar are eliminated, and in the last challenge, Oozma Kappa wins a close victory -- only because Sulley cheated by lowering Mike's level way down low, which proves that Mike is not very scary after all. Still determined, Mike breaks into the door lab and through a door to the human world, and is unable to scare any children inside a summer camp cabin. Sulley comes to rescue him, and after he does so, he and Mike are expelled, while the other members of Oozma Kappa are in the scare program. Luckily, the two were the first to surprise her, and she wishes them luck. Sulley and Mike are hired to the mailroom, and working their way up, they are now part of the Scarer Team.
