The word of the day is جامعة (jaami3a, university).

Plural is: جامعات (jaami3aat)

Other words from the same stem (ج م ع) are:

جمع (jama3a, to collect, to gather)

جامع (jaami3, mosque). Plural جوا مع (jawaami3)

Of course, both universities and mosques are places where people gather, hence their connection to this root.
