With a new university in my community, there will be many advantages. For starters, there will be exposure. My small community will be able to expand due to the university. This is because an educational institution creates all forms of employment. There will be bookshops, hotels, hostels, residential apartments, restaurants, clubs, and even lecturing opportunities.
The other side of exposure is that we will get to interact with people from other parts of the country. Thiswidens our thinking and helps us make new friends. Our local football team is not doing so well, so if the university team can give us some great scores, then we wdl have new heroes to support.
