Description Edit

Pendelton is a state university located in the suburban town of Rutherford, Ohio. Alien High Commander Dick Solomon came to Earth on a mission to learn about the planet's people and culture and accepted a teaching position at Pendelton where he became a Physics professor. He shared an office with Anthropology professor Mary Albright, whom he fell madly in love with. While Dick was well-liked by many of his peers, despite his aloof nature, Mary felt that she had not earned the respect of the older tenure professors - a fact that caused her a great amount of consternation. Despite this however, Mary was eventually made Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. Mary's professional assistant at Pendelton was Nina Campbell who also attended the school as a student. Other students at the school include Bug Pollone, Aubrey Pitman, Caryn and the inept Leon. Some of the more notable staff members at the university include Doctor Judith Draper, professor of Women's Studies and Professor Suter, an elderly man whom Dick enjoyed joking around with.
