College is an incredibly momentous time in one's life; it's an occasion for personal growth and expansion. Undergrads continue to learn who they would like to become and forge many of the requisite skills to be a successful member of society. But growth goes far beyond a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the personal lesson received from an old professor, the exposure to a different vantage point. As such, a diverse student body greatly enhances what one gains from the time at college.
