look up any word, like hipster:
 
1.
An 80's based nickname for Contra Costa College, an East Bay community college located just north of Richmond, California. The name is derived from the proximity to a former Mervyns anchor store located in a nearby strip mall, the El Portal Sopping Center.
I couldn't get into Cal State Hayward, so I'm going to the University Behind Mervyns for a semester to get my GPA up.
