This Map Plots Where Your Favorite College Movies Were Filmed

Posted: Updated:

Behold, a map showing you where all your favorite movies were filmed.

The website eCollegeFinder created this nifty map, and a guide to go with it, showing where a slew of movies set in college were filmed. The guide explains the names of the fictional colleges and the locations where they were actually filmed. You may find out that even though the movies says it all takes place at Yale, it may have been filmed at the University of Toronto.

It includes everything from "Revenge of the Nerds" at the fictional Adams College in Arizona, to the make believe "Grand Lakes University" in Wisconsin for "Back To School," and of course "The Social Network" at Harvard University, filmed around Boston (though not actually at Harvard's Cambridge campus).

One thing we learned: Harrison University, the fictional setting for "Old School," was filmed at Will Ferrell's alma mater, the University of Southern California.

Clarification: Language has been added to indicate that while "The Social Network" filmed in and around Boston, it was not actually filmed on the Harvard campus.
