After the first class was graduated at Warren, R.I., Sept. 11, 1769, a spirited contest for the honor of a permanent home for the college was undertaken among the leading towns of the colony. The choice fell to Providence and in 1770 the first college building was erected on the college grounds, the cost being covered chiefly by subscriptions from residents of Providence.
