The first cornerstone was laid for the university in 1793. The still standing Old East building is the oldest state university building in the United States. In 1795, the first student was enrolled and graduated three years later. The Civil War split the nation in 1861 and several university students enlisted to fight as Confederate soldiers. In the fall of 1868, the university was closed by the governor because of unsolvable debt, only to reopen from the spring of 1869 to 1871. The university remained closed until 1875. Three years after the reopening, the first female earned a degree from the university. In 1903, the graduate school was created. The year of 1924 the men's basketball team claimed their first national championship title. Student enrollment soared in 1946 after World War II and by 1955 the university enrolled its first African-American undergraduate students. The fifth, and most recent, national championship was claimed by the men's basketball team in 2005 under the leadership of Coach Roy Williams. Finally, in 2007, a full-time professor of laboratory medicine and pathology, Oliver Smithies, was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work.
