Dave's College Campus Photo Collection

Colleges and Universities

Universities that are not named after the city or state where they are located.

See my college collection and read my travel stories.

After visiting all the presidential graves, I needed a new travel hobby. I still go to cemeteries for famous gangsters and others, but I wanted something with a list.

When I was in New Jersey, I saw a direction sign for Rutgers and thought "I always wondered where Rutgers was". Likewise Villanova near Philadelphia and Vanderbilt in Nashville. I realized there were dozens of famous colleges with non-geographic name around the country (Notre Dame, Pepperdine). So  I started my newest photo collection. I had always wondered where . . .

My only rules: Major colleges (whatever that means) as every city has a "Joe Johnson College". No state or city name unless the city is small and essentially named after the university (ex: Auburn, AL; Princeton, NJ)
