This Map Shows Where Schools From Your Favorite College Movies Are Located

Growing up, I was always disappointed that most schools from classic college films didn’t exist. Not being able to suit up for South Central Louisiana University and follow in the footsteps of Bobby Boucher was crushing. That scholarship never came, and I almost had to settle for South Harmon Institute of Technology…until I realized the obvious. We couldn’t attend these institutions of higher education, but now, thanks to eCollegeFinder, we have an idea of where all these schools are located.
