College is an immensely impactful investment in one's life; it's a chance for individual growth and maturation. Students try to capture their values and forge the essential skills to become a successful member of society. But growth goes beyond the classroom - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote gained from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different worldview. Therefore, finding a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time in college.
