A campus novel, also called the academic novel, is a novel that's story is around or about a campus of a university. The genre is said to have started in the 1950s. The Groves of Academe by Mary McCarthy, written in 1952, is often called the first campus novel, but some have also said that novels such as C.P. Snow's The Masters, of the year before, were campus novels.
