Journalism Schools: Journalism school is a school or department, usually part of an established university, where journalists are trained.
Land Grant Institutions: A land-grant university is an institution of higher education in the United States designated by a state to receive the benefits of the Morrill Acts of 1862 and 1890. The Morrill Acts funded educational institutions by granting federally controlled land to the states for them to sell, to raise funds, to establish and endow "land-grant" colleges. The mission of these institutions as set forth in the 1862 Act is to focus on the teaching of practical agriculture, science, military science and engineering as a response to the industrial revolution and changing social class.
Lutheran Colleges: Lutheran Colleges in the U.S.
Playground Equipment: A playground, playpark, or play area is a place with a specific design to allow children to play there. It may be indoors but is typically outdoors. Modern playgrounds often have recreational equipment such as the seesaw, merry-go-round, swingset, slide, jungle gym, chin-up bars, sandbox, spring rider, trapeze rings, playhouses, and mazes, many of which help children develop physical coordination, strength, and flexibility, as well as providing recreation and enjoyment. Common in modern playgrounds are play structures that link many different pieces of equipment.
Seventh-day Adventist Colleges: The Seventh-day Adventist educational system is the second-largest Christian school system in the world, after the Roman Catholic system. The church supports holistic education:"Mental, physical, social, and spiritual health, intellectual growth, and service to humanity form a core of values that are essential aspects of the Adventist education philosophy".
