College can be an extremely consequential adventure in one's life; it's an occasion for individual growth and maturation. Students attempt to figure out their purpose and develop the required skills to become a flourishing adult. But learning also happens outside the classroom - the late nights discussing Marx with a schoolmate, the life lesson gained from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different perspective. Therefore, attending a diverse college greatly enriches what you gain from your time spent at school.
