History

Kansas State University, originally named Kansas State Agricultural College, was founded on February 16, 1863, during the American Civil War, as a land-grant institution under the Morrill Act.[5] The school was the first land-grant college newly created under the Morrill Act, although several other universities claim to be the oldest land-grant school.[5] K-State is the fourth-oldest school in the Big 12 Conference and the oldest public university in the state of Kansas.
