Fewer than ½ of first-time, full-time college students complete a baccalaureate (four-year) degree within 6 years at the institution they entered. And, 1 out of 5 U.S. citizens has “some college, but no degree.” It is amazing to me that so many students that start college do not finish.

No one wants students to leave their college and everyone wants to see their students succeed.
