My best experience in college has been being exposed to different cultures and lifestyles. When you get to see how someone was raised, you begin to understand why that person reacts to situations differently.

If you do not get involved, you will feel as if you are wasting your time. Actively participating grants you the opportunity to meet new people and build your networking team.
