Felicity is an American drama series that aired at the tail end of the 1990s and early 2000s. It focused on the college life of a number of individuals and the trials and tribulations they endured during enrollment. Each season of the series represented respective freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years. The show's protagonist is Felicity Porter, played by Keri Russell. After her high school crush Ben Covington, played by Scott Speedman, writes in her yearbook that he wished he got to know her better, Felicity decides to forego her choice of Stanford and heads off to the fictional University of New York, where Ben has enrolled. While she adjusts to this new era in her life Felicity meets her residence advisor Noel Crane, portrayed by Scott Foley. Throughout the series Felicity dates both Ben and Noel, resulting in the show's major drama points.
