Eight novels set at the world's preppiest universities

At Town & Country magazine Adrienne Westenfeld tagged eight novels set at the world's preppiest universities, including:
Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon: University of Pittsburgh

Beneath a haze of pot, satire, and American dreaming, Chabon explores how artistic ambitions and youthful promise go awry with age. Expect to fall in love with this novel's triumvirate of wonder boys: a professor entrapped by his interminable second novel, his randy editor, and a student obsessed with Hollywood self-destruction.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Wonder Boys is among John Niven's top ten writers in novels.
