College can be an exceedingly formative adventure in one's life; it is an occasion for personal growth and expansion. Scholars try to discover what they are capable of and develop many of the rudimentary skills to be a thriving member of society. But learning isn't completely confined to a classroom environment - the discussions which one has with her schoolmates, the nugget of wisdom gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different background. As such, a diverse univeristy experience greatly enriches what one gains from the time spent in school.
