College can be an exceedingly significant period in one's life; it's a chance for individual growth and maturation. Students continue to learn their calling and cultivate many of the necessary skills to become a prosperous member of society. But learning is more than what one learns in a classroom - the late nights discussing Langston Hughes with a classmate, the funny story learned from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different perspective. As such, a diverse student experience tremendously improves what one gains from the time spent in college.
