College can be an exceedingly meaningful time in one's life; it is a time for personal progress and maturation. Pupils start to ascertain who they can be and build the indispensable skills to be a thriving adult. But learning isn't exclusively confined to a classroom - the interactions which one has with his peers, the personal lesson received from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different point of view.
