College often is a supremely influential investment in one's life; it is a chance for individual growth and development. Students try to realize who they can be and learn many of the indispensable skills to be a halcyon member of society. But growth goes beyond a classroom environment - the interactions one has with his peers, the nugget of wisdom gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different vantage point. As such, attending a diverse college vastly improves what you gain from your time in college.
