College can be a particularly significant time of one's life; it is a time for personal progress and development. Undergraduates try to figure out who they would like to become and cultivate many of the indispensable skills to become a prosperous member of society. But growth goes far beyond a classroom - the campus dialogue, the funny story gained from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different life experience. As such, a diverse student population greatly enhances what you gain from your time spent in university.
