University of Delaware

Founded: 1743 / 1833 University of Delaware
Nickname/Mascot: Blue Hens / YouDee
Colors: Blue, Gold
Motto: Scientia Sol Mentis Est (Knowledge is the light of the mind)
Location: Newark
While the school that became the University of Delaware was founded in 1743, the university was not considered a institution of higher education until 1833, thus it is not the oldest university in the U.S. Add to that the fact that they chose a blue hen over a green duck and their decision making is going to be suspect.
