College is an exceedingly productive time of one's life; it's a chance for personal growth and development. Pupils begin to discover who they are as people and build the requisite skills to be a prosperous member of society. But growth is more than sitting in a classroom - the conversations one has with her schoolmates, the wild anecdote learned from an old instructor, the exposure to a different vantage point. As such, attending a diverse college tremendously enhances what one gains from the time at college.
