CNU is the youngest comprehensive university in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The institution is named after Christopher Newport, who was a pirate (or privateer) and captain of the Susan Constant, the largest of three ships which carried settlers for the Virginia Company in 1607 on the way to find the settlement at Jamestown in the Virginia Colony, which became the first permanent English settlement in North America.
