Morehouse College is a private, all-male, liberal arts, historically black college in Atlanta, Georgia. The college is one of the few remaining traditional men's liberal arts colleges in the United States.
Founded in 1867 by William Jefferson White, an aggressive expansionary program undertaken by the college's 6th President Benjamin Mays, during the 1950s and 1960s, established Morehouse as the largest men's college in the United States, with an enrollment of over 2,000 students.
The student-faculty ratio is 13:1. Along with Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse School of Medicine and nearby women's college Spelman College, Morehouse is part of the Atlanta University Center. In 1881, both Morehouse and Spelman students were studying in the basement of Atlanta's Friendship Baptist Church.
Morehouse is one of two historically black colleges in the country to produce Rhodes Scholars, and it is the alma mater of many African-Americancommunity and civil leaders, including Martin Luther King Jr.
