From Wikipedia

Susquehanna University is a private university in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, in the Susquehanna Valley. It was founded in 1858 by Benjamin Kurtz as the Lutheran-based Missionary Institute paired with a sister college, the Susquehanna Female College. When the sister college closed in 1873, the missionary institute became co-educational, and in 1895 it became a four-year school renamed Susquehanna University.
