College often is a vastly momentous period of one's life; it's a chance for personal growth and development. Scholars try to ascertain their values and build the crucial skills to become a thriving member of society. But growth also happens outside a classroom - the campus dialogue, the life lesson received from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different take on things. As such, attending a diverse college tremendously enriches what you gain from your time spent at university.
