College can be one of the more constructive adventures in one's life; it's an occasion for personal progress and development. Undergraduates try to ascertain who they can be and cultivate the imperative skills to become a prosperous member of society. But growth isn't solely found in a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the nugget of wisdom received from an old professor, the exposure to a different way of looking it. As such, finding a diverse college vastly enhances what you gain from your time at college.
