College often is a very formative period of one's life; it is an occasion for personal progress and expansion. Students attempt to learn who they can be and cultivate many of the must-have skills to be a prosperous adult. But learning also happens outside a classroom - the late nights discussing Vonnegut with a schoolmate, the funny story received from an old instructor, the exposure to a different way of viewing the world. Therefore, finding a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time at university.
