Best Answer

The trimester system is widely known as the "quarter system" in higher education, while the bimester system is widely known as the "semester system". The semester system was the only one available until the early 20th century, when the University of Chicago pioneered the quarter system, which is seen as somewhat more difficult and demanding. Other elite schools that use the quarter system include: Stanford University, Dartmouth College, and Northwestern University.
