Background of the Study

Tertiary education broadly refers to all post-secondary education, including but not limited to universities. Universities are clearly a key part of all tertiary systems, but the diverse and growing set of public and private tertiary institutions in every country—colleges, technical training institutes, community colleges, nursing schools, research laboratories, centers of excellence, distance learning centers, and many more—forms a network of institutions that support the production of the higher-order capacity necessary for development. (www.worldbank.org) People attend college and university for many different reasons for example, new experiences, career preparation, and increased knowledge. Many students attend college or university for many reasons. Although people think that universities are available for career preparation and increasing knowledge, in colleges represent a new experience on life. In a social perspective, going to college and university is e new experience in life and through such live experience people become more wiser, mature and responsible .Student that attend colleges are separated from their parents and their homes Now they are forced to face another reality but this time at different rules, being alone and not having the support of their families. Through that they use to be more mature and to handle the world by themselves. Similarly, participating in a college could be very useful for people because only in these ways they can come across to diverse social, cultural and multi-language groups. By meeting new people that are not from their hometown and further that they do not speak the same language could be e new experience that each ones of them can have. (www.essayforum.com )
