College is an extremely poignant period in one's life; it's a chance for personal progress and maturation. Students continue to capture who they are and build many of the imperative skills to be a prosperous member of society. But learning is not confined to the classroom - the campus dialogue, the life lesson received from an old professor, the exposure to a different frame of mind. Therefore, a diverse campus tremendously enhances what you gain from your time spent in school.
