Blog Tag: University of Jamestown
With roots dating back to 1883 (a time before North Dakota was even a state), the University of Jamestown (UJ) has been a regional fixture for well over a century. It represents a historical significance that almost never came to be. During its infancy, the school was closed due to the Panic of 1893 (a depression that plagued the U.S. until 1897). That could have been the end of the University’s story, but a full economic recovery led to an educational void that begged for it to reopen. Jamestown College (as it was originally named) reopened on September 22, 1909, and the rest is history.
