“An opinion piece in the New York Times says that 30 percent of college freshmen will not return for a second year of school. If dropping out is due to students realizing they’d rather pursue a different path in life, then that’s a smart move, but the sad reality is that many of these dropouts occur because young adults are unable to function away from home. They start college with enthusiasm, believing it’s the next logical step toward success in life, but quickly find it’s too much to handle.”
