Spike Lee is a weird little character; however, he is a brilliant filmmaker. School Daze captures every element of the Morehouse College experience, the school Lee graduated from (and I attended Morehouse last year.) The only thing different between the movie and reality is that the school in the movie was called Mission College, which merged Morehouse (a historically black, all-boys school) and Spelman College (the historically black, all-girls school across the street). Everything else is the same, from the fraternities and sororities, to the campus (it was filmed at Morehouse, Spelman, as well as two other HBCUs nearby) Spike brilliantly captured the experience of Morehouse and Spelman, added satire and awesome compositions, and merged it into a film that is timeless.
