"Alma mater is Latin for "nourishing mother". It was used in ancient Rome as a title for the mother goddess, and in Medieval Christianity for the Virgin Mary.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
It is now a term mainly used in academia as a sobriquet for the university or college a person has attended. This usage is taken from the full name ("Alma Mater Studiorum Universit di Bologna") of the oldest European university, the University of Bologna." (Wikipedia)
