Unless you peaked in high school, blossomed after graduation, or never attended at all, the years you spend at college are some of the best of your life. Anyone who's set foot on a college campus knows that it's a magical place. College transforms children into adults, allowing them to grow through extracurricular activities. And by extracurricular activities, we mean drinking, sex, and the other absurd things co-eds do that Asher Roth so aptly detailed in "I Love College."
Even before you attended college, ideas of what it would mean were ingrained in you through its image in television and movies. Those four (or more) years look even more magical when dramatized.
This week marks the 25th anniversary of School Daze, Spike Lee's second feature film, which takes a fictional, historically black college as its subject matter. It's in honor of this film, and of the short-lived thrill of college in general, that we present the 25 Best Fictional Colleges and Universities. Study up!
