“As I often like to say, I was the kind of student who made the top half of the class possible. But I did have a lot of fun here, perhaps a bit too much. I’m only glad they didn’t have digital cameras to record it. I would have ended up on YouTube.” ...

Johns Hopkins University

The Johns Hopkins University (informally Johns Hopkins, JHU, or just Hopkins) is a not-for-profit private research university in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. The University was founded on January 22, 1876, and named for its benefactor, the philanthropist Johns Hopkins. Daniel Coit Gilman was inaugurated as the first president on February 22, 1876.

The institution pioneered the concept of the modern research university in the United States and has ranked among the world's top such universities throughout its history. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has ranked Johns Hopkins #1 among U.S. academic institutions in total science, medical and engineering research and development spending for 31 consecutive years. As of 2011, thirty-seven Nobel Prize winners have been affiliated with Johns Hopkins over the course of just 120 years, and the university's research is among the most cited of any institution globally, earning it a far-reaching reputation as one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

Johns Hopkins maintains campuses in Maryland; Washington, D.C.; Bologna (Italy); Malaysia; China and Singapore. The university is organized into two undergraduate divisions and five graduate divisions on two main campuses—the Homewood campus and the Medical Institutions campus—both located in Baltimore. The university also consists of the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, the Peabody Institute, the Carey Business School, and various other facilities.
