The Best Fictional Colleges and Universities

While many high school seniors consider their top dream colleges as application deadlines near, other consider the colleges of their dreams, the best fictional colleges from movies and television. These are not real colleges, but some of these fake colleges sure sound better than some of the other choices in the US and abroad for college.

From the hard partying antics of Animal House's Faber College to the science and leadership focus of Star Trek's Starfleet Academy, there are myriad colleges better than the ones you could ever dream of being accepted to and this list is here to rank the greatest fictional universities and colleges.

What is the top fictional college? What fake colleges party the hardest? You vote and decide! If you think the students of Community would take out the frat boys at Old School's Harrison University any day, make sure to vote for them.
