The University of Chicago (commonly referred to as UChicago, The U of C, or just Chicago) is a private, coeducational research university located principally in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, USA. It was incorporated by oil magnate and benefactor John D. Rockefeller and the American Baptist Education Society in 1890; William Rainey Harper became its first president in 1891 and the first classes were held in 1892.
