Campus Ladies is an American sitcom that premiered on Oxygen on January 8, 2006. It stars Christen Sussin and Carrie Aizley as two 40-something women who decide to go enroll at the fictional University of the Midwest. The humor comes from the various situations the "ladies" get involved in while trying to fit in with their much younger friends and classmates.
Campus Ladies Wikipedia
The shopping trip of recent widow Joan Beamin and married Barri Martin-lifelong friends and both apparently childless-is cut short when Barri wastes a drink on her skirt. When they go to Barri's house for her to change, they find her husband Roger having an affair in their bedroom. The ladies end up in a bar and observe a group of students from the local fictional University of the Midwest, ultimately deciding to enroll.
Once at UMW, the ladies meet Drew and Abdul, two of their classmates who will be living in the room next to them. Drew is tall and blond and believes himself to be a ladies' man, but in actuality, is far from that. Abdul is an Iranian young man who refers to everyone as "Mister" and "Miss." The ladies also meet their roommate, a young woman named Paige, who is, at first, not thrilled to be sharing a room with Joan and Barri. There is also Guy, the dorm's resident adviser.
From there on, the ladies embark on the adventures of college life, complete with one-night stands, sexual experimentation, research papers, and football games.Christen Sussin as Barri Martin

The show was confirmed canceled by Amir Talai on a MySpace fan page. The comment said: "I regret to inform you that Campus Ladies has been canceled. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support. The show was the most fun I've ever had on a set, and I made some life-long friends there. Be on the lookout for the DVDs at some point. Lots of love to all the shows fans."
