Founded in September 1808 by Rev. John Dubois; second oldest Catholic college and second oldest Catholic seminary in the country. By December of 1808 Dubois had affiliated himself with the Society of St. Sulpice, and in 1811 control of the college was transferred to the Sulpicians. In 1826 they ceded all control back to Dubois. That same year he was elected Bishop of New York.
