College often can be an immensely formative adventure in one's life; it's a time for individual growth and expansion. Pupils continue to realize what they can be and develop many of the imperative skills to be a thriving member of society. But growth is more than what one learns in a classroom - the campus dialogue, the life lesson gained from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different approach. Therefore, finding a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time at college.
