College is a very momentous adventure in one's life; it is a chance for personal progress and expansion. Undergraduates begin to capture their calling and develop many of the integral skills to become a prosperous member of society. But growth is more than sitting in a classroom environment - the late nights discussing World War II with a classmate, the wild anecdote learned from an old instructor, the exposure to a different worldview. Therefore, attending a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time in college.
