Concept of Campus

    The word "Campus" is very important to us. Do you know what it means? University? Collection of buildings? Place to meet students? It was John Witherspoon who produced this word. Witherspoon was the sixth president of the College of New Jersey (now called Princeton University), and served for 25 years. He was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Before him, the college consisted of one building called Nassau Hall, but many new buildings were added during his presidency. After seeing those buildings springing up, he came with the word "Campus."
