Best Answer

The first was Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, in 1835. Although Oberlin was the first college to admit blacks in 1835, it was not the first institution of higher learning to admit blacks. That was Princeton Theological Seminary, ten years before, in 1825 when Theodore Wright was admitted. He was graduated three years later as a member of the class of 1828. When he was recommended for study at Princeton Seminary by the Presbytery of Albany (New York), the Seminary Board of Trustees declared "his color shall form no obstacle in the way of his reception." page 35, William K. Selden, Princeton Theological Seminary: A Narrative History 1812-1992, (Princeton, Princeton University Press, 1992)

Rutgers 6 Princeton 4

College Field, New Brunswick, NJ Rutgers University and its neighbor, Princeton, played the first game of intercollegiate football on Nov. 6, 1869, on a plot of ground where the present-day Rutgers gymnasium now stands in New Brunswick, N.J. Rutgers won that first game, 6-4. The game, which bore little resemblance to its modern-day counterpart, was played with two teams of 25 men each under Rugby-like rules, but like modern football, it was "replete with surprise, strategy, prodigies of determination, and physical prowess," to use the words of one of the Rutgers players.
