College is one of the more influential periods in one's life; it's an opportunity for individual growth and development. Students begin to realize their values and forge many of the essential skills to be a halcyon member of society. But growth is more than sitting in a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote learned from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different life experience. Therefore, a diverse campus tremendously improves what one gains from the time spent in college.
