College can be an immensely revelatory period of one's life; it's a chance for personal growth and development. Undergraduates attempt to figure out what they are capable of and build the imperative skills to be a thriving adult. But learning is more than sitting in a classroom - the conversations one has with her schoolmates, the nugget of wisdom learned from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different way of thinking. Therefore, attending a diverse college vastly enriches what you gain from your time spent at university.
