    College should be a time to expand horizons by meeting new people, getting exposure to new ideas and becoming a better critical thinker. Meeting new people are one of the best parts about college. Many colleges have students from around the country, as well as from different countries. For example, college students in Texas may meet and perhaps room with students from New York City, Seattle, London, and Tokyo. Getting to know new people is not only exciting because of possible new friendships. But it also helps expose you to new ideas. People who grow up in different cultures often look at things differently. A student from London will have a very different perspective on European politics from a student who live in Seattle. Meeting new people however, is not the only way college students get exposed to new ideas. Every class that a college student took exposes him or her to new ideas. Whether its American Indian Literature or College Algebra 101, the professor instructing the class will introduce concepts and methods that will be new to students. These new ideas, along with new friendships and relationships, will help students become critical thinkers. With each new experience, students will need too make decisions and form reactions. Many students think they should know everything when they enter college they should be prepared for all the new people, and experiences that await them.
