College often can be a very productive investment in one's life; it is an opportunity for individual growth and development. Undergraduates begin to figure out who they can be and build many of the underlying skills to be a flourishing member of society. But growth is not solely found in the classroom - the conversations which one has with his schoolmates, the funny story learned from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different vantage point. As such, finding a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time in university.
