College is a very influential period in one's life; it's a chance for individual progress and maturation. Scholars continue to ascertain what they can be and build the required skills to become a flourishing adult. But growth isn't completely confined to a classroom - the late nights discussing the Second Intifada with a schoolmate, the wild anecdote received from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different way of looking it. As such, finding a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time spent in university.
