The University of Rochester, a private 4-year school, is located in Rochester, NY near Lake Ontario. Set along a bend in the Genesee River, the 200 acre “River Campus” contains most of the academic buildings. The main buildings are centered around Eastman Quadrangle and are in the Greek Revival architectural style; additional nearby campuses are the Medical Center, Eastman School of Music and South Campus in Brighton (just south of Rochester). Founded in 1850 as a Baptist sponsored institution, after Colgate University was prevented from moving to Rochester. The University formally went co-ed in 1900 (previously, women had taken classes as ‘visitors’ in the 1890s). Among the many notable alumni who made their mark in research, academia and government are five Nobel Prize winners and four Pulitzer Prize winners.
