College often is an extremely influential period of one's life; it is an opportunity for personal progress and expansion. Scholars try to ascertain their values and develop the requisite skills to become a prosperous adult. But growth is deeper than what one learns in the classroom - the late nights discussing James Baldwin with a classmate, the nugget of wisdom gained from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different background. As such, a diverse student population greatly enriches what one gains from the time in college.
