College is an incredibly meaningful time of one's life; it's an opportunity for individual progress and maturation. Undergraduates continue to find out what they want to pursue and cultivate many of the essential skills to be a flourishing adult. But growth is more than what one learns in a classroom environment - the late nights discussing Noriega with a schoolmate, the nugget of wisdom learned from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different stance on an issue. Therefore, attending a diverse college vastly enriches what one gains from the time in university.
