There are 8 schools in the Ivy League: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, Cornell, Penn.

These schools banded together to form an athletic conference - sometimes known as the "Ancient 8 Conference" and, more commonly, called the Ivy League. It just so happens that the schools in this athletic conference are among the most selective and academically rigorous in the nation.
