ATG Quirkies: The Oldest College in Each State

Here is a post on the Houston Chronicle website by Jessica Hamilton that reports the results of research done by CollegeFinder, a higher-education information website.  

The folks at CollegeFinder have compiled data about each college with an eye on when each intuition first opened its doors to students. From prestigious private schools to flagship public universities these are  the institutions “cloaked in tradition with roots dating back hundreds of years.”

After CollegeFinder determined which schools were the oldest in each state, they were gathered together in this easy to navigate slideshow, so check it out!
