A Little Guessing Game

The founders of one of most well-known institutions of higher learning wrote this as their mission statement:

"Let every student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed, to consider well that the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life, and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sounds knowledge and learning."

Anyone have a guess as to which college this is?
