College often is an extremely meaningful investment in one's life; it is an opportunity for personal progress and expansion. Pupils start to learn what they are capable of and forge the needed skills to become a halcyon member of society. But learning isn't confined to a classroom - the campus dialogue, the personal lesson received from an old instructor, the exposure to a different worldview. As such, a diverse student population tremendously enriches what one gains from the time in college.
