How did you do with your classes last semester? Was it a walk in the park? A tough experience? Or somewhere in between?
You really didn’t think that every class you’re required to take in college would be a walk in the park, did you? Maybe among your chosen electives you thought you’d pick the winners, but every college requires students to take classes that they aren’t particularly fond of be that Microeconomics, Introduction to Polynesian History, or Visual Calculus.
The typical college student is no longer the 18- to 24-year-olds that finished high school and immediately went on to college. Today’s college students are a diverse lot and include military veterans, stay-at-home mothers, business folk, and others.
Few students register for college with the intent to fail or drop out. Unfortunately, by the end of your freshman year, one in three of your first-year classmates will quit according to US News and World Reports.
