College often is one of the most influential periods in one's life; it is an occasion for personal growth and evolution. Scholars begin to learn what they would like to do and cultivate the imperative skills to be a prosperous member of society. But learning is not entirely confined to the classroom - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote received from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different take on things. Therefore, attending a diverse college tremendously enriches what you gain from your time spent in college.
