College in Hartford, CT
The University of Hartford is young as universities go. It was chartered on Feb. 21, 1957 as a University for the Hartford community. It merged three existing schools, the Hartford Art School, the Hartt School of Music, and Hillyer College. In the ensuing decades, the University has expanded to seven schools and colleges and has moved from being a commuter school to a huge domestic campus that offers nearly 90 undergraduate majors and more than thirty graduate degree programs.
