sounds a lot like Reed College
, down to faculty and building names. And apparently it doesn't exist
University of Redwood (not to be confused with College of the Redwoods, which is a perfectly legitimate school)
, which seems to be just a web site and a P.O. box, is apparently designed to collect application fees from foreign students (who will presumably all get rejection letters after they've paid up). But rather than going to the trouble of writing their own fake content, the people behind this "University" apparently just took content from the Reed College web site and replaced the name "Reed" with "Redwood" (right down to the names of the founders). Reed College is, understandably, not amused.
