College often can be a fabulously consequential period in one's life; it's an occasion for individual growth and evolution. Pupils start to find out what they would like to pursue and build the integral skills to be a successful adult. But growth is not confined to a classroom - the interactions which one has with his peers, the funny story learned from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different viewpoint. As such, attending a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time at school.
