	Ah, in the movie it was Dartmouth - but in the book, under an alias,
it was Kenyon.  That's because the author went there and he really liked to
pick on the place.  He was teaching there while I was there and he made no
secret of his favorite topic for satire.  He liked to see himself as rough
boy from Jersey tossed among the "preppies", which may have been true in his
undergrad day, but was increasingly inaccurate by mine (re: the preppies to
Others ratio).   He also sauntered around in an Eddie and the Cruisers
jacket years and years after the movie came out, but whatever.  What a
character.  It was a great place to study, esp. literature.
