College Trivia: Round 6

Ivy League LogoQuestion: Which 8 colleges make up the “Ivy League?”

Answer: Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Yale.

The term Ivy League refers to 8, east-coast universities highly regarded for their academic rigor, impressive standards, and history. These schools are some of the oldest universities in the nation, and they got their Ivy title from a New York Herald Tribune sports writer, as they all competed in the same athletic conference. The term stuck, and today high school students everywhere aspire to enter the gates of these esteemed institutions – but for their academics and not their athletics.
