On Location

The sorority house that Thorton stumbles upon in the beginning is actually the Tri-Delta house at the on 28th St. (The Row) at the University of Southern California. You can see the greek letters and a dolphin (their mascot) painted on the street in front of the house when his limo pulls up. [Thanks to Jason]

The exterior of the house of Sally Kellerman's character ("Diane") was the same home used in the original "Halloween" (i.e., the "Tommy Doyle House" to those in the know!). The home is actually located on Orange Grove right off of Sunset Blvd. in the heart of Hollywood. [Thanks to Dan Farrands]

Much of Back to School was filmed on the campus of the University of Wisconsin at Madison, hardly a swimming powerhouse. Long, cold winters cut the outdoor swimming season down to about three months. In fact, as a student there I don't remember one outdoor pool. [Thanks to Mark Everly]

The swim stadium scenes where the diving competiton took place is the swimming complex at the Industry Hills Sheraton / Country Club in the City of Industry, about 25 miles southeast of Hollywood, CA. [Thanks to Sal Gomez]

Some scenes were filmed at California State University, Los Angeles, CA.

Can you help? Do you know any of the (or any other) filming locations used for Back To School, particularly Thornton's House.? [Please send them in]
