Male Student [1] was the male student that Peter was doing tests on at the beginning of the first film.


Primary CanonEdit

The Male Student participated in the experiment on the effect of negative re-enforcement on ESP ability that was conducted at Columbia University by Dr. Peter Venkman. The only other participant shown was Jennifer. While Jennifer was given preferential treatment and always told that her responses were correct, he was never allowed a correct response, even when he did identify the wavy lines (close scrutiny of Jennifer's cards reveals that he was in fact accurately predicting them). He grew tired of the experimental procedures, specifically the inflicting of electrical shocks in correspondence with each incorrect (or, in the one case, correct) guesses. Accordingly, he decided to forgo the $5.00 payment he was promised for volunteering as a test subject. He also enjoys chewing gum.

Secondary CanonEdit

Sometime in the summer, the Male Student walked past a Pequod's on Broadway where Ray Stantz and Jenny Moran happened to be meeting up.
