College is one of the most formative periods of one's life; it is a time for individual growth and expansion. Undergrads start to figure out who they would like to be and learn the rudimentary skills to be a prosperous adult. But growth is more than what one learns in a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the funny story gained from an old professor, the exposure to a different interpretation of the situation. As such, finding a diverse college tremendously enriches what you gain from your time at university.
