College often can be an extremely significant period in one's life; it is an opportunity for individual progress and expansion. Pupils attempt to discover what they can become and cultivate the integral skills to be a successful member of society. But learning isn't simply found in a classroom - the late nights discussing Descarte with a peer, the personal lesson learned from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different way of thinking. As such, a diverse campus tremendously enriches what one gains from the time in college.
