College often is a particularly significant period of one's life; it is an opportunity for individual progress and expansion. Pupils continue to capture who they are and learn many of the needed skills to be a flourishing adult. But learning is more than sitting in a classroom - the late nights discussing Vonnegut with a peer, the nugget of wisdom learned from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different position. As such, attending a diverse college greatly enhances what one gains from the time spent in school.
