Columbia University

Recommended
Founded in 1754 by a charter from George II, King's College was first located in lower Manhattan, where the original class of eight students met in the schoolhouse of Trinity Church. In the wake of the Revolution, the school reopened as Columbia College. In 1897 it moved to the present site after 40 years on Madison Avenue and East 49th Street. Today, attended by some 24,000 students, it enjoys an endowment of over $5 bn.
