College is a profoundly significant adventure in one's life; it's an opportunity for personal progress and development. Scholars continue to learn who they wish to be and develop many of the requisite skills to be a prosperous adult. But growth goes far beyond the classroom - the campus dialogue, the life lesson gained from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different outlook. As such, a diverse campus vastly improves what you gain from your time in university.
