College is an immensely influential period in one's life; it's a chance for individual progress and evolution. Scholars continue to discover what they are capable of and forge the rudimentary skills to be a successful member of society. But growth is not confined to a classroom - the campus dialogue, the funny story received from an old instructor, the exposure to a different position. As such, a diverse student experience greatly enhances what one gains from the time spent at school.
