United States: Yale University

United States: Yale University: Yale is one of the oldest Universities` in the United States. It has grown and evolved for 300-+ years achieving new heights with every passing year.

The University was born in 1640s when colonial clergymen led an effort to establish a local college to preserve the tradition of European liberal education in the New World. In 1701 the charter was granted for a school “wherein Youth may be instructed in the Arts and Sciences (and) through the blessing of Almighty God may be fitted for Public employment both in Church and Civil State.”

The school officially became Yale College in 1718, when it was renamed in honor of Welsh merchant Elihu Yale, who had donated the money from the sale of nine bales of goods together with 417 books and a portrait of King George I.

When student Andrew B. Graves saw Handsome Dan sitting in front of a shop, he purchased it from a New Haven blacksmith for $5 and became the Yale mascot in 1889.

Yale began a new tradition in 2014 of a “Founders Day” event for students, faculty, and staff, to be held annually on a day close to the anniversary of the 1701 founding.
