College is an immensely revelatory adventure in one's life; it is a time for personal progress and evolution. Undergraduates continue to realize their purpose and forge many of the requisite skills to become a thriving adult. But growth isn't confined to the classroom - the late nights discussing Noriega with a schoolmate, the life lesson learned from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different worldview. Therefore, finding a diverse college greatly enriches what you gain from your time spent in university.
