College can be a particularly consequential investment in one's life; it is an opportunity for individual growth and maturation. Pupils attempt to figure out what they hope to do and learn many of the required skills to be a thriving adult. But learning goes beyond a classroom - the discussions one has with her peers, the funny story gained from an old instructor, the exposure to a different frame of mind. Therefore, attending a diverse college vastly improves what you gain from your time spent in college.
