Hide Profile

Rutgers was first chartered in 1766 as Queen's College, the eighth institution of higher learning to be founded in the colonies. The school opened its doors in New Brunswick in 1771 and during its early years, the college developed as a classic liberal arts institution. In 1825, the name of the college was changed to honor a former trustee and Revolutionary War veteran, Colonel Henry Rutgers. In 1864, Rutgers College became the land-grant college of New Jersey. Rutgers College attained university status in 1924, and legislative acts in 1945 and 1956 designated all its divisions as The State University of New Jersey.
