Top 10 Words That Come from "Mother"

Goto next slide#4: Alma Mater

A good school nurtures its students; the term alma mater ("fostering mother" in Latin) is rooted in that nurturing.

Alma mater refers either to a school one attended, or to that school's song.

The ancients used alma mater as a title for such goddesses as Ceres, the Roman goddess of the growth of food plants, and Cybele, who was worshipped as the universal mother of gods, humans, and animals.
