“Good Will Hunting” showcased Matt Damon as a janitor-turned-genius trolling the halls of MIT. Damon’s character, Will Hunting, dated a Harvard undergrad named Skylar, played by Minnie Driver in the film. Those Harvard sets were more familiar to the actor than you might think. Damon attended Harvard and majored in English, dropping out just 12 credits shy of obtaining his bachelor’s degree to pursue acting in 1988.
