Topics
Northeastern University Confidence: 84% Arrow up

Northeastern University (NU, formerly NEU) is a private research university in Boston, Massachusetts, established in 1898.

It is categorized as an R1 institution (Doctoral Universities: Highest Research Activity) by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

University Confidence: 75% Arrow up

A university ("a whole", "a corporation") is an institution of higher (or tertiary) education and research which grants academic degrees in various academic disciplines.

Universities typically provide undergraduate education and postgraduate education.

Education Confidence: 70% Arrow up

Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits.

Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research.

Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves.

Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.

The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy.

Tradition Confidence: 68% Arrow up

A tradition is a belief or behavior passed down within a group or society with symbolic meaning or special significance with origins in the past.

Common examples include holidays or impractical but socially meaningful clothes (like lawyers' wigs or military officers' spurs), but the idea has also been applied to social norms such as greetings.

There are about 150 new traditions made each year.

Traditions can persist and evolve for thousands of years—the word "tradition" itself derives from the Latin tradere or traderer literally meaning to transmit, to hand over, to give for safekeeping.

While it is commonly assumed that traditions have ancient history, many traditions have been invented on purpose, whether that be political or cultural, over short periods of time.

Various academic disciplines also use the word in a variety of ways.
