A new report released this week stated that even though college is traditionally viewed as taking four years to complete, only 19 percent of undergraduate students earn a degree within that time frame, in part because they are unable to register for required courses and don’t take enough credits per semester. What do you think?

“Maybe if kids today would spend a little more time studying and less time working two jobs to pay for school, they would graduate on time.”
