Time Out says

A mischievous silent film featuring Clara Bow as Stella, a flighty girl with hair of fluff and heart (finally) of gold. In a transatlantic tale of the Angela Brazil genre, Stella's good-time girl stereotype is challenged a) by another student for whom studying is a serious thing, and b) by a heroic professor whose savage heart beats beneath a pocket of tweed and a respect for learning. Despite the dashing moral ending, it's a very enjoyable film, and Arzner handles the exposition of and challenge to the stereotype very astutely, especially in a scene of sexually violent response by some men in a bar to a deliberately provocative bevy of girls.
