Why Students Fail Out of College: A Personal Story

Why students fail college: a personal story - Ali in Bloom

Why students fail college: In my opinion, if you don’t know who you are or what you want, there’s no way you can succeed in your endeavors.

I know I wasn’t at 18.

Here’s the thing, schooling looks very different for each of us. If you are dedicated to receiving your education, it’s worth taking some extra time to think it over.
