First appearance"A Big Piece of Garbage" (1ACV08)

This is the famous Mars University, founded in 2636, with several mottos including "Knowledge Brings Fear" and "A Giant Pulsating Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste". Mars University has the largest library collection in the western universe (namely two optical discs: one for "Fiction", and one for "Non-Fiction"). Its organization and premises resemble modern universities quite a bit (fraternities, traditional college foliage, acceptance of students in exchange for donations, etc). Professor Farnsworth teaches the "Mathematics of Quantum Neutrino Fields" class, while Amy is one of the students. The University students are alien, humans and even robots. During the "Mars University" episode Fry enrolled in order to become a certified college drop-out once more. As well as, Bender said to have previous studied here and returned to steal and trash the school once more.
