Is there something that happens sometime during second semester sophomore year that makes good students quit school?
Last night I heard about another to-be junior not returning to their college ..this makes the 5th student this Fall. All (3 girls and 2 boys), as far as I know, were not in academic or financial jeopardy. I dont want to give too much info in order to protect their privacy.
One girl didnt return to her OOS public. She is now attending a non-degree dental hygiene program. Last semester, despite loving the school, the city and her major EC activity, she was struggling to find a major that would give her decent job prospects without a graduate or professional degree.
Another didnt return to OCU where she was receiving FA connected to her major. She failed to inform her family and friends that she wasnt returning until days before school started.
One of the boys didnt return to flag-ship public and is looking for a job and deciding what to do next. He may attend a local LAC next Fall.
I know kids drop out of college, but isnt it usually during the first year?
