Word of the day – Advocate

For the next few weeks, METS will be posting a word of the day. Some will be in the SAT prep vein, others will be college-related words you may have heard, and not completely understood.

Today’s word is: advocate

n. someone who promotes or defends something

v. to defend or promote something (usually a belief, theory, opinion, etc.)
