College can be an exceedingly significant period of one's life; it's a time for individual progress and expansion. Undergrads try to figure out what they can be and cultivate the essential skills to be a flourishing member of society. But learning is not solely found in the classroom - the discussions one has with his peers, the life lesson gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different approach. As such, a diverse student experience tremendously improves what you gain from your time at university.
