Harvard College, situated in Cambridge Massachusetts, is the undergraduate liberal arts college of Harvard University. One of the most prestigious institutions in the world, Harvard College was founded in 1636, making it the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. It was established by a vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, although at the time it was without a single building, instructor, or student. Harvard became home to North America's first known printing press in 1638, after one was carried across the Atlantic by the ship John of London.
