College can be an immensely revelatory time of one's life; it's a chance for personal progress and expansion. Undergraduates attempt to figure out who they are as people and forge many of the imperative skills to be a halcyon member of society. But learning is not entirely confined to a classroom environment - the discussions one has with her classmates, the nugget of wisdom gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different background. Therefore, finding a diverse college tremendously improves what you gain from your time spent in school.
