CWRU Thoughts

Maria Fazal, Staff Reporter

Q: How has being a college student changed your perspective?

A: I think being with people who are different from you is really helpful.  Having to interact with people who are different from you,  living with people whose backgrounds you don’t know – and they don’t know yours– and learning other people’s ways of thinking is good for me, I think.  In a way, it’s made me more sure of my own ideas, and it’s also made me more tolerant.  I’m more willing to understand other people’s opinions, but I also understand my own ideas better.
