College can be an incredibly influential investment in one's life; it's an opportunity for individual growth and expansion. Undergrads attempt to ascertain what they can become and cultivate many of the indispensable skills to be a prosperous adult. But learning is more than sitting in a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the nugget of wisdom received from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different perspective. As such, finding a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time at school.
