Ten fictional colleges:
- University of Okojobi
- Hudson University
- University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople
- Hillman College
- Christminster University
- Spuzzum Institute of Technology
- Globetrotter University
- Faber College
- Midston University
- Pacific Institute of Technology
I am, frankly, stunned that I've not already done this list. But I just finished checking my archive and I defintely haven't. Go figure.
Anyway, canadia_bit wanted to see Spuzzum, B.C., mentioned in a list. Spuzzum is a wee town of fifty people or so, located along the Trans-Canada Highway. There is not a university there, despite what some people may have you believe. As for the other schools mentioned above: University of Okojobi is pretty much the same kind of place as Spuzzum Institute of Technology, only in Iowa; Hudson University is Dick Grayson's alma mater; University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople is mentioned on several P. D. Q. Bach albums by Peter Schickele; Hillman College is the setting of the TV show A Different World; Christminster University appears in the novel Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy; Globetrotter University is where Ethan "Bubblegum" Tate teaches physics, according to the Futurama episode "Time Keeps on Slipping;" Faber College is the college at which Animal House takes place; Midston University is where Danny Dunn's friend and mentor Professor Bullfinch taught; and Pacific Institute of Technology is where Chris Knight, Mitch Taylor, and most of the other characters in Real Genius went to school.
