There are many experiences that can offer these benefits, not just a college education, but a college education is pretty good at expanding a student's personal philosophies and creativity. It also widens a student's network of relationships, teaches them how to live on their own, and in some cases lights a fire in students that becomes their life long pursuit in a particular field.
