Columbia university

Prior to the American Revolution, Columbia University was known as King’s College. Established in 1754, it is one of the oldest colleges in New York City. By the 1920’s, the pre-American college has grown to over sixty buildings, ranging from rather plain red brick structures to Romanesque style architecture. Also, Columbia has expanded its curriculum from liberal arts to include the study of medicine, law, dentistry, optometry, engineering, business, architecture, library services, journalism, political science, and philosophy. The university campus includes Teachers College, Barnard College, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Physicians and Surgeons. Though Union Theological Seminary is associated with Columbia University, it has an independent administration. Additionally, Columbia University in the 1920’s has non-segregated classrooms, making it much more liberal than many others in the United States at the time.
