College can be a particularly momentous period in one's life; it is a time for individual progress and evolution. Students attempt to ascertain who they hope to become and cultivate the essential skills to become a prosperous member of society. But growth isn't confined to a classroom - the late nights discussing James Baldwin with a schoolmate, the life lesson learned from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different take on things. As such, attending a diverse college vastly enhances what you gain from your time at school.
