Everyone knows the story of Thaddeus Thurkell — the man that was so appalled by his seven sons that turned out to be Squibs, that he turned them all into hedgehogs. He’s got a chocolate frog card and everything, but what happened to his seven sons, you ask?
After they were eventually turned back into humans, they left home. Who wouldn’t, after their father turned them all into hedgehogs? They left England, and moved to Galway, Ireland. They settled in and then they got talking. What did they want to do now that they were free from their father’s disapproving grasp?
That was how Gráinneog Institute was founded. Seven majors, for each of the sons’ seven passions: History, Law, Medicine, Mathematics, Engineering, Architecture, Muggle Studies.
Stone by stone, castles were built. It took them years to build up the original nine buildings that make up Gráinneog Institute.
Throughout the years, more buildings have been built to add onto the campus. There is now an athletic center and a student commons. As a university founded by Squibs, they have adapted with the times, with computers in the library and commons, and Muggle technology everywhere.
For more than half of their long history, they only accepted Squibs into their midst, but in the last hundred years, any student willing to learn is now admitted into the school.
