Overview

Once an educational backwater, Metropolitan University has risen to the top tier of American colleges. But success has come at a price, the institution's spirit crushed under the thumb of Fortin Shenford, Met's ambitious president, who effectively quashes all opposition on campus, his sights set on loftier peaks.

Against this backdrop, the residents of Sterling Hall's fourth floor manage to form a lasting bond. A fraternal oasis in a student body known for apathy and lack of cohesion, Sterling 4 is populated by memorable characters: Mike "Wally" Hall, leader of the self-styled Mutants; Dwight, the wheelchair-bound video game wizard; Marcus, the sheltered, socially naive freshman; Chug Allen, student-politician and rascal king; Brandon, the blunt-spoken activist; and tomboyish Rosemary, Marcus's unspoken crush. Over four years, enduring friendships are born, rules broken, and traditions established as they move from the trials of adolescence to the waiting responsibilities of adulthood.

Set in the go-go 1980's, University is a fun-filled romp through undergraduate life, in an era fondly remembered, yet not far distant from our own time.
