College can be an extremely influential time of one's life; it is a time for individual progress and maturation. Pupils continue to realize their purpose and build many of the required skills to be a successful adult. But growth also happens outside the classroom - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote gained from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different frame of mind. Therefore, finding a diverse college tremendously enriches what one gains from the time at college.
