You can watch above English Class 101 video series episode 8. In this lesson you are going to learn how to ask someone where they went to school or college. Asking someone this question is a good small talk question and conversation starter.
However you have to be careful not to offend people if they didn’t go to college. We will tell you how to do this. The question is simple. If the other person is over 22, it’s likely they will have left college already. So you ask using the past tense.
Where did you go to college?
You could also say: “Where did you go to school?” In American English, depending on context “school” often meens the same as “college”.

All you say is: “I went to (university), in (city)”.
