Top definition
A university course that has a competitive grading, so only a few select number of students can get A's despite their actual performance in the class. For example, a student could have worked to get a 93%, but because of an arbitrary decision the university has made they could get a B. These classes are not about learning or maximizing the potential of each student, they are about surviving and making sure your classmates fail.
Student #1: My friend Greg in your finance class was sick, can you send him a copy of your notes?

Student #2: Sorry man it's a hunger games course, I got to look out for myself.

"Me and my friends are going to check out every book in the library for this class, so no one else can study. It eat or be eaten in these hunger games classes bro."
