College often is a very consequential adventure in one's life; it is an occasion for individual growth and maturation. Pupils continue to realize who they can be and develop the necessary skills to become a flourishing adult. But learning is more than what one learns in a classroom environment - the late nights discussing the Second Intifada with a classmate, the life lesson learned from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different perspective. Therefore, finding a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time spent at university.
