Almost half of students fail to complete their college degree in 4 years

Filed under: College — admin @ 12:03 am

On 8/26, Sunday afternoon, while at Barnes & Noble’s with my daughter, I read this piece of information, which I might have read before but without paying attention.

Almost half of American college students fail to complete their college degree in four years. Almost a third of them drop out of college.

I am no longer surprised now after I learn from my son that many of his high school and college friends graduated this year instead of last year. Many college students, without helicopter parents, fail at least in time management, self-regulation and self-control.

I think of my son, which took seven required classes in his last semester, plus a trip to Europe and job interviews. Whoa! What a crazy life! Something for my daughter to think about.
