College can be a supremely revelatory investment in one's life; it is a time for personal growth and expansion. Scholars begin to discover what they can be and develop the necessary skills to become a thriving member of society. But learning is not confined to the classroom - the campus dialogue, the life lesson received from an old instructor, the exposure to a different point of view. Therefore, a diverse campus vastly improves what one gains from the time spent at school.
