Vanderbilt University is a post-secondary institution in Nashville, Tennessee. It was ranked 18th on U.S. News and World Report's top National Universities in 2006, and 15th Best Value. It is one of Newsweek's 25 "New Ivies". It is highly selective, admitting only around a third of applicants. Vanderbilt offers over 70 undergraduate majors in four different colleges. It also offers several graduate and pre-professional programs. The university was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1873 after receiving a $1 million (equal to ~$18 million in 2010) endowment from Cornelius Vanderbilt. This philanthropic act by Vanderbilt, a northern shipping magnet and entrepreneur, was made in hopes of healing sectional wounds in the south. Vanderbilt University operated as a religious university initially but is now a secular institution.
