THE RADIO STATION:   Radio Stations have been on college and university campuses for decades.
One of the first college radio stations was a predecessor to WRUC at Union College, which broadcast music in 1920, claiming to be the first. According to Union College, At 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14, 1920, Union’s student-operated radio station conducted a historic broadcast.
College radio stations have even created its own music categories and had its own music festival, magazine and record labels…

How old is college radio?

College radio has a storied history in the United States. Some of the first student-run radio stations in the U.S. and Canada launched over AM in the 1920s, but experiments were happening on college campuses prior to that. Campus-only carrier current radio stations rose to prominence beginning in the 1940s. Learn more about the early days of college radio in this Q&A that I did with author Hugh Richard Slotten. There are many “first” claims in college radio…including… Source:

Beloit College
A Beloit College professor began experimenting with wireless telegraphy in 1907 and conducted some impressive transmissions during the next decade. Beloit College built a licensed student radio station by 1924.
St. Joseph’s College (Philadelphia)
St. Joseph’s College in Philadelphia was awarded the first experimental radio license in the United States in 1912, although it didn’t build a broadcast station until 1922 (which was very short-lived).
University of Minnesota
Many other schools were doing experimental work in radio before 1920, mainly through academic departments. University of Minnesota’s KUOM (aka Radio K) celebrated 100 years of radio on campus in 2012, as it commemorates a professor’s experimental broadcasts in 1912. According to the KUOM website, a University of Minnesota football game was broadcast using Morse Code in 1915. The school received an experimental radio license in 1920 and a broadcast license for WLB in 1922. More history is detailed on Continuum, the University of Minnesota Libraries website.
Grove City College
A Physics professor at Grove City College did radio-related experiments beginning in 1911 and by 1913 a radio receiving station was built, followed by licensed, experimental transmitting station 8CO in 1914. According to WSAJ’s website, “After a brief moratorium on amateur radio during World War I, the college returned to the airwaves for experimental and training purposes in January 1920, this time as call-sign 8YV. On the evening of April 26, 1920 under the watchful eye of Dr. Harmon, Weir C. Ketler, president of the college, went on the air and addressed the New Castle Rotary Club nearly 20 miles away.” The WSAJ call letters were assigned to the AM station in 1921 (the station continued over AM until 2006). Today, the school operates FM station WSAJ-FM.
