Herbert H. Lehman College, established in 1968 as an independent unit of the City University of New York, took over the campus that since 1931 had served as the Bronx branch of Hunter College. Originally, only women students attended, taking their first two years of study at the Bronx campus and then transferring to Hunter's Manhattan campus to complete their undergraduate work

Fordham University was founded in 1841 as St. John's College by the Right Reverend John Hughes, later to become the city's first Roman Catholic archbishop. Its first president, John McClosky, became the nation's first cardinal. The Jesuits bought the college in 1846. St. John's College was reestablished as a university in 1907, and became Fordham University.
