College can be an awfully significant time in one's life; it's an opportunity for personal growth and expansion. Scholars attempt to realize who they can be and build many of the essential skills to become a thriving member of society. But learning is not completely confined to a classroom - the discussions which one has with her peers, the personal lesson gained from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different point of view. As such, a diverse campus greatly enriches what one gains from the time spent in university.
