College can be an especially consequential time in one's life; it is a time for personal progress and expansion. Undergraduates continue to find out what they wish to pursue and forge many of the needed skills to become a halcyon member of society. But growth goes beyond a classroom - the conversations one has with his schoolmates, the life lesson gained from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different life experience. As such, finding a diverse college greatly enhances what you gain from your time spent at university.
