October 28 - Harvard College was Founded

On this day, 374 years ago, Harvard College was founded. We here at Good News Weekly remember it like it was yesterday.

Harvard College is one of two schools within Harvard University that grants undergraduate degrees. It is Harvard's oldest school, and has had its fair share of notable alumni. Two of the most famous alumni are Bill Gates (Microsoft) and Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)--both of whom, oddly enough, did not graduate.

Notable alumni who have graduated from Harvard College include CNBC's Jim Cramer, Nobel Prize winner T.S. Eliot, actor Tommy Lee Jones, musician Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), and former president John F. Kennedy.
