Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins University first pioneered the concept of the modern research university and has ranked among the world’s best such universities throughout its history.  The Hopkins campus is based in Homewood, a tree-lined, 140 acre campus next to the eclectic Charles Village neighborhood. It houses the Johns Hopkins University Press, founded in 1878 and the oldest continuously running university publisher in the nation. Hopkins cultivates critical and independent thinkers, equipping them with knowledge in the arts, humanities, social and natural sciences and engineering. The men’s lacrosse team, the Blue Jays, has won over 40 national championships and had a fierce rivalry with the University of Maryland, which it has played over 100 times since 1899.
