College going fans of 'Suits,' USA Network's law-based series, now have an opportunity to catch-up with their favorite stars. The network is bringing the corporate law world right into college campuses starting Feb.4, a month and two days before it kicks off its Season 3 premiere on March 6.

The SUITS cast will not only visit several colleges but will also head to their alma mater, Harvard. The Ivy League school has been an integral part of the law firm, Pearson Spector. In the series, associates are hired only from Harvard.
As Louis Litt, the junior partner at the firm says (Season 2, 'Meet the New Boss'), "Pearson Hardman is Harvard, Harvard is Pearson Hardman and one cannot survive without the other." It is, however, surprising that their first stop isn't Harvard.
However, Harvey Spector, the star lawyer and protagonist of the show, makes an exception while hiring Mike Ross, who has not gone to any college let alone Harvard, as his associate.
The SUITS College Tour will also make subsequent stops at UC Berkeley, UCLA, University of Arizona, Northwestern University, Boston and Columbia University over the course of five weeks. Every campus will feature an interactive Q&A where cast members will answer the series' most controversial questions and disclose behind-the-scenes moments.
Special SUITS merchandise including t-shirts, tote bags, sunglasses, Uniball pens, water bottles, bottle openers and energy drinks will also be given to the students.
No, Jessica Pearson's valued possession is not on the list. Well, you know how much she loves her tea set and even refuses to share it with former managing director of the firm, Daniel Hardman, right?
"SUITS has cultivated a zealous millennial fan base and our college tour is a great way to engage with them in a meaningful way," said Alexandra Shapiro, executive vice president, marketing and digital, USA Network. "We are excited to create a unique experience with special access to the franchise and talents that will help our devoted viewers forge a real-world connection to the series," Broadway World reports.
