Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, and the University of Pennsylvania were grouped together in the same NCAA sports division for the first athletic conference of 1954. But the "Ivy League" name reportedly dates back to 1933, when Stanley Woodward, sports editor for the New York Herald Tribune, referred to the schools as "ivy colleges."
The cheapest Ivy League school is Princeton University, with a $47,140 yearly tuition, and a net price (the average price students actually pay) of $16,302, which is still lower than every other Ivy League university.
