Having been founded even before the United States, Rutgers University can teach its students a thing or two about history. Founded in 1766 as Queen's College, the university was the colonies' eighth institution of higher education. It offers undergraduate and graduate degrees from more than 30 schools and colleges on three campuses. Rutgers has more than 67,000 students and some 8,000 faculty members. The university's schools and colleges offer undergraduate majors in more than 100 fields, including business and law, as well as over 200 graduate programs. Rutgers' name changed in 1825 to honor Revolutionary War hero and alumnus Colonel Henry Rutgers.
