College is a vastly poignant adventure in one's life; it is a chance for individual progress and maturation. Undergrads start to ascertain their values and learn the needed skills to be a prosperous member of society. But growth also happens outside the classroom - the campus dialogue, the life lesson gained from an old instructor, the exposure to a different stance on an issue. As such, a diverse student body vastly enriches what one gains from the time spent at university.
