College is one of the more consequential times in one's life; it is an opportunity for personal growth and development. Pupils continue to realize who they are as people and cultivate many of the needed skills to be a halcyon adult. But learning is not confined to a classroom environment - the conversations one has with his schoolmates, the funny story learned from an old instructor, the exposure to a different approach. As such, finding a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time spent in university.
