Columbine High School, Littleton, Colorado, USA

June 20th, 2007 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Columbine High School is a secondary school in unincorporated Jefferson County, Colorado. The school was the scene of the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999.

The school is located at 6201 South Pierce Street, one mile west of the Littleton city limits and half a mile south of the Denver city/county line. "Littleton" is indicated in the school's postal address because its ZIP code, 80123, is primarily associated with that city. However, the school is part of the Jefferson County Public Schools district and not the Littleton Public Schools system. The current principal is Dr. Frank DeAngelis.

The school was the site of the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999, when Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and one teacher, and wounded 24 others, before taking their own lives. The massacre made headlines around the world, making Columbine a household name, and causing a moral panic in American high schools.

Hostels of The University of Silesia, in Katowice, Poland.

The University of Silesia was established in Katowice in 1968 as the ninth university in Poland and is an autonomous state university. The University has its origins in the Higher School of Education, which was founded in 1928 - at that time it was the only institution of higher education in the region. Later, the school became a branch of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, the oldest Polish University. It now has campuses in five cities in the region: Katowice, Sosnowiec, Rybnik, Chorzów, Cieszyn and Jastrzębie Zdrój. The majority of faculties are located in Katowice. The main University site, located within a five-minute-walk from the centre of Katowice, allows access to the many amenities of this progressive city.

The University is located in the centre of a heavily industrialised region. Coal, steel and other industries exert a strong influence upon life of local people. For that reason, the university concentrates on equipping its students for life, as well as for work, so that they may acquire a deeper understanding of their inner resources. University's close links with the Silesian region and local industries play an important role in ensuring that its courses meet the demands of the present day and fulfil students' expectations.
