College often can be an awfully significant time of one's life; it's an occasion for personal progress and evolution. Pupils attempt to discover what they wish to do with their lives and build the indispensable skills to be a flourishing member of society. But learning goes beyond the classroom - the interactions one has with his peers, the wild anecdote received from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different outlook. Therefore, a diverse univeristy experience tremendously improves what one gains from the time spent in college.
