College can be a particularly poignant investment in one's life; it is an opportunity for individual growth and maturation. Undergrads start to figure out their calling and develop many of the indispensable skills to be a prosperous adult. But growth also happens outside the classroom - the late nights discussing Noam Chomsky with a classmate, the wild anecdote learned from an old instructor, the exposure to a different vantage point. As such, a diverse student population vastly enriches what you gain from your time in university.
