College often can be a supremely revelatory time in one's life; it's an occasion for individual growth and maturation. Undergrads continue to figure out who they are and cultivate many of the crucial skills to become a thriving adult. But growth also happens outside a classroom - the late nights discussing Vonnegut with a schoolmate, the personal lesson gained from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different background. Therefore, attending a diverse college vastly improves what one gains from the time spent in college.
