College often is a vastly significant time in one's life; it is a chance for personal progress and evolution. Scholars continue to learn who they wish to emulate and forge the integral skills to be a prosperous member of society. But learning also happens outside a classroom - the conversations one has with their schoolmates, the wild anecdote gained from an old instructor, the exposure to a different perspective. As such, a diverse univeristy experience vastly enhances what one gains from the time spent at college.
