Polishing Diamonds in the Rough
The Lord has his hand in drawing clear distinctions between the four Church universities and college - what they do, who they serve, and how they serve. He then brings those individuals to the appropriate institution, one by one - just as He ministered on earth - based on their capabilities and possible covenants made before coming to mortality. He brings them for developing skills, chipping off the rough edges, and polishing until they "become a smooth shaft in the quiver of the Almighty," as Joseph Smith said. The brilliance of the College's history comes from the stories of these diamonds in the rough.
