The Ivy League Schools
The Ivy League schools are considered to be some of the most prestigious schools worldwide. It is a conference comprised of 8 different schools, which you will learn about in this presentation, and two of which are mentioned in the book we will be reading. Their ideals are based on academic performance, and they are therefore very selective in admitting students. The schools were named "Ivy League" because of the ivy planting ceremonies that occur at the school on a holiday called "Ivy Day". They are mainly located on the east coast of North America, and are all very distinguished schools, as all of them rank in the top 20 universities.
