Thanks for those examples. I guess I should point out that there are Grandfather clauses in place for .edu TLDs registered prior to 2001 October. The examples provided were all registered prior to 2001 and appear to be credible educational institutions.

Some excerpts from the .EDU TLD Policies
All institutions holding names as of October 29, 2001 in the .edu domain will be allowed to keep them without regard to institutional eligibility requirements at this time.
Institutions that do not already hold a name in the .edu domain are eligible to receive one if they are post-secondary institutions that are institutionally accredited, i.e., the entire institution and not just particular programs, by agencies on the U.S. Department of Education's list of Nationally Recognized Accrediting Agencies (see recognized accrediting bodies). These include both "Regional Institutional Accrediting Agencies" and "National Institutional and Specialized Accrediting Bodies." Note that institutional accreditation is required for .edu eligibility; program accreditation is not sufficient. Only a single name in the .edu domain will be assigned to any given institution.
Instututions and organizations with .edu domains prior to October 2001 will be allowed to retain those domains so long as they maintain proper administrative control. See the Customer Service Agreement for further informations.
Names in the .edu top-level domain, regardless of when issued, may not be transferred in any way by the Registrant to any other entity.
Transferring" includes selling, trading, leasing, assigning, or any other means of transferring.
