College often is an incredibly formative investment in one's life; it is a time for personal progress and expansion. Scholars attempt to realize their purpose and forge many of the necessary skills to become a flourishing adult. But growth is more than sitting in a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the nugget of wisdom received from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different way of viewing the world. As such, a diverse student population greatly enhances what one gains from the time in university.
