I am an undergraduate at Clemson University. I see Wikipedia not only as a great academic resource but a great way to preserve knowledge and history. Its not so much that I like history, its that I feel a need to preserve. If only one person 50 years from now visits a page I edited or created with historical content, then I feel it would be worth the time. The only way society can advance is to build on its past. If we don't remember our past, we have nothing to build on.
