College is a fabulously poignant period in one's life; it's a chance for individual progress and evolution. Undergraduates try to capture who they can be and develop many of the crucial skills to become a prosperous member of society. But growth goes beyond a classroom - the late nights discussing Langston Hughes with a classmate, the personal lesson learned from an old instructor, the exposure to a different attitude. As such, a diverse univeristy experience tremendously improves what one gains from the time at school.
