College can be a very significant time of one's life; it's an occasion for individual progress and development. Undergraduates try to learn their calling and cultivate the must-have skills to be a prosperous adult. But growth goes beyond the classroom - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote learned from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different vantage point. Therefore, a diverse college experience greatly enriches what one gains from the time at university.
