WORLD'S SECOND IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's second Ivy League school?
Everyone knows that the eight Ivy
League schools are considered places of prestige and those who attend are
generally thought to be in a higher social standing than those who attend the
other less well-known colleges and universities throughout the United States.
And although these schools are generally thought to be considered ‘Ivy Leaguers’
because of their high standards of academic excellence and their challenging
application process, the term ‘Ivy League’ actually refers to an athletic
conference in which the different sports teams would compete against each other.
These sporting events, such as football, are still held in high regard today
among these schools and are huge events to attend.
Although the eight schools are actually ranked in
any kind of order, the second Ivy League school can be determined by looking at
when the schools were established. By that criterion, Yale University is the
second Ivy League school. Yale University was established in 1701 and is located
in New Haven, Connecticut. It was once known as Collegiate School and it was
during this time that the school colors, and therefore, the colors for all
sporting teams, was green but today, Yalies can be seen sporting their deep blue
colors all to support the team!
