College is an exceedingly consequential time of one's life; it's a time for individual progress and maturation. Scholars begin to learn what they hope to do with their lives and build many of the underlying skills to become a successful member of society. But learning isn't confined to a classroom - the campus dialogue, the funny story learned from an old professor, the exposure to a different view. Therefore, attending a diverse college tremendously enriches what you gain from your time in college.
