For the first four decades, the students and faculty lived almost entirely on the college campus. That changed in 1887, when professors William J. Beal and Rolla C. Carpenter created Collegeville, along what is now Harrison, Center, and Beal streets north of Michigan Avenue. At the time the post office address was “Agricultural College, Michigan” A school district encompassing the community was created in 1900. In 1907, incorporation as a city was proposed under the name “College Park”, the legislature approved the charter but changed the name to “East Lansing”.
