ScranBarre actually gave me the idea for this thread when he mentioned a neighborhood that he liked that was adjacent to the university in Omaha.
What neighborhoods in the US do you love that are bordering or surrounding a university?

Offhand, I come up with:

Druid Hills = Emory University (Atlanta)
Winter Park = Rollins College (Orlando)
University Park = SMU (Dallas)
Georgetown = Georgetown University (Washington DC)

Uptown New Orleans = Loyola and Tulane Universities

Isla Vista = UC Santa Barbara (this neighborhood is only good for students b/c it's party central on the beach and the housing stock is crap)
