Ivy League

History of the Ivy League:


The term Ivy League commonly refers to a group of eight, east-coast colleges and universities renowned for their high academic standards and significant history. These schools were some of the earliest American institutions founded: Harvard in 1636, Yale in 1701, Penn in 1740, Princeton in 1746, Columbia in 1754, Brown in 1764, Dartmouth in 1769 and Cornell in 1865.

Taken more literally, the Ivy League refers to the athletic conference in which the eight colleges' sports teams compete. The term 'Ivy League' was conceived in the 1930s by Stanley Woodward, a New York Herald Tribune sports writer. It was not until years later that an official coalition was actually formed by the universities.


IVY League Schools are:

Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and Yale University.
