No Anime for College?

So, most anime features protagonists between the age of 13 and 18. I'm 20, and though I still enjoy most anime, I'd appreciate something a bit more relate-able, like something about people in college, or characters past their teen years :/

Anyone know of any like this?

Clannad into Clannad: After Story is a good choice. Also Steins; Gate though the main protagonist is 18 he seems much older.

ANGEL BEATS! <------ I love this one. It features people out of college and has some tear jerking moments.

Some of these have already been said, but oh well.

Golden Time
Servant x Service
The Devil is a Part-Timer
The Eccentric Family
Blast of Tempest
Leads are supposedly in high school, but you wouldn't know from watching them.
Fullmetal Alchemist:(Brotherhood) Nothing high school about this. You can pretty much forget the actual ages.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Chobits yet.

It's not necessarily college, if I remember correctly, but it's based around someone who has graduated from school, who is going through some sort of pre-college cram courses before hopefully getting into college.

But it certainly reminds me of something like college life. Dorms, learning to cope with life in the big city, so on and so forth.

Another one, also by CLAMP, is Kobato. Although the main character herself doesn't go to college, every main character is at least college age, and one of them indeed goes to college (and there's at least one episode that takes place on a college campus that I remember distinctly.) This show also has a daycare as one of the main settings within the plot.

KotS is definitely high school, and I think Bakuman is actually middle school, and I believe the main character in Beck is a high schooler.

Rideback takes place in a college.
