Accept and college party

Posted by Sphinx on June 08, 2003

Hi folks,
1."We are much more accepting of people with disabilities nowdays..."

("Accept" is a transitive verb, then why add "of" here? or it is a fixed pattern?)

2.The professor took a college party to the mountians to search unusual plants.
(what is a "college party")

3.And do you know where I can find the meanings of sets of synonyms? like bureau, administration, and department?

thanks in advance!
