Topics
Bates College Confidence: 95% Arrow up

Bates College is a private liberal arts college in Lewiston, Maine.

The college was founded by abolitionist statesmen and established with funds from textile tycoon, Benjamin Bates.

Founded by Oren Burbank Cheney in 1855, it was one the only colleges in the U.S. to admit black students before the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment.

It is also the oldest coeducational university in New England, and the first to award a degree to a woman in New England.

Lewiston, Maine Confidence: 91% Arrow up

Lewiston is the most central city in Androscoggin County in the U.S. state of Maine, and the second-largest city in the state.

The population was 36,592 at the 2010 census.

It is one of two principal cities of and included within the Lewiston-Auburn, Maine, metropolitan New England city and town area and the Lewiston-Auburn, Maine Metropolitan Statistical Area, which as of 2006 census estimates has a combined population of 107,702.

It is also part of the extended Portland-Lewiston-South Portland, Maine, combined statistical area, which has a combined population 621,219 as of 2006 estimates.

The city has historical French-Canadian connections; as much development of the city occurred during the migration of French-Canadians from Montreal, Canada.

Liberal arts college Confidence: 87% Arrow up

A liberal arts college is a college with an emphasis on undergraduate study in the liberal arts and sciences.

A liberal arts college aims to impart a broad general knowledge and develop general intellectual capacities, in contrast to a professional, vocational, or technical curriculum.

Students in a liberal arts college generally major in a particular discipline while receiving exposure to a wide range of academic subjects, including sciences as well as the traditional humanities subjects taught as liberal arts.

Although it draws on European antecedents, the liberal arts college is strongly associated with American higher education, and most liberal arts colleges around the world draw explicitly on the American model.

Residential college Confidence: 82% Arrow up

A residential college is an organisational pattern for a division of a university that places academic activity in a community setting of students and faculty, usually at a residence and with shared meals, the college having a degree of autonomy and a federated relationship with the overall university.

The term residential college is also used to describe a variety of other patterns, ranging from a dormitory with some academic programming, to continuing education programs for adults lasting a few days.

In some parts of the world it simply refers to any organized on-campus housing, an example being University of Malaya.

Mixed-sex education Confidence: 80% Arrow up

Mixed-sex education, also known as mixed-gender education, co-education or coeducation (abbreviated to co-ed or coed), is a system of education where males and females are educated together.

Whereas single-sex education was more common up to the 19th century, mixed-sex has since become standard in many cultures, particularly in Western countries.

Single-sex education, however, remains prevalent in many Muslim countries.

The relative merits of both systems have been the subject of debate.
