College is a supremely momentous period of one's life; it's a chance for individual progress and maturation. Scholars continue to ascertain what they are capable of and develop the necessary skills to be a thriving adult. But growth isn't confined to a classroom - the late nights discussing Descarte with a peer, the personal lesson gained from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different attitude. As such, attending a diverse college tremendously improves what you gain from your time at university.
