Research University
A RESEARCH UNIVERSITY is a university that expects all its tenured and tenure-track faculty to continuously engage in research , as opposed to merely requiring it as a condition of an initial appointment or tenure. Such universities can be recognized by their strong focus on innovative research and the prestige of their brand names. On the one hand, research universities strive to recruit faculty who are the most brilliant minds in their disciplines in the world, and their students enjoy the opportunity to learn from such experts. On the other hand, new students are often disappointed to realize their undergraduate courses at research universities are overly academic and fail to provide vocational training with immediate "real world" applications; but many employers value degrees from research universities because they know that such coursework develops fundamental skills like critical thinking

Collegiate Gothic
COLLEGIATE GOTHIC was an architectural style subgenre of Gothic Revival architecture , popular in the late-19th and early-20th centuries for college and high school buildings in the United States and Canada
Canada
, and to a certain extent Europe. A form of historicist architecture, it took its inspiration from English Tudor and Gothic buildings. Ralph Adams Cram , arguably the leading Gothic Revival architect and theoretician in the early 20th Century, stated the appeal of the Gothic for educational facilities in his book Gothic Quest as, "Through architecture and its allied arts we have the power to bend men and sway them as few have who depended on the spoken word. It is for us, as part of our duty as our highest privilege to act ..

Sandstone
SANDSTONE is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized (0.0625 to 2 mm) mineral particles or rock fragments . Most sandstone is composed of quartz or feldspar because they are the most resistant minerals to weathering processes at the Earth's surface, as seen in Bowen\'s reaction series . Like uncemented sand , sandstone may be any color due to impurities within the minerals, but the most common colors are tan, brown, yellow, red, grey, pink, white, and black. Since sandstone beds often form highly visible cliffs and other topographic features, certain colors of sandstone have been strongly identified with certain regions. Rock formations that are primarily composed of sandstone usually allow the percolation of water and other fluids and are porous enough to store large quantities, making them valuable aquifers and petroleum reservoirs

High School
A SECONDARY SCHOOL is both an organization that provides secondary education and the building where this takes place. Some secondary schools provide both LOWER SECONDARY EDUCATION and (UPPER) SECONDARY EDUCATION (levels 2 and 3 of the ISCED scale), but these are often provided in separate schools. When lower secondary education is provided in the same school as primary education or in a separate school, usually called a middle school , it is usually not called secondary education (except by some education experts) and is considered to be the second and final phase of basic education . Secondary schools typically follow on from primary schools and lead into vocational and tertiary education. Attendance is compulsory in most countries for students between the ages of 13 and 16. The organisations, buildings, and terminology are more or less unique in each country
