Registrars in many universities report more than 50% of a given freshman class fails to graduate. In this paper this group of students is considered to be the problem student which is troubled with one or more of the perplexities discussed later. Deans, Registrars, and Department Heads have spent many hours in discussions, meetings, and seminars attempting to solve the "drop-out" problem. The purpose of this paper is not to offer a solution to this problem, but rather to remind members of NACTA of the staggering number of students who need help. Perhaps our efforts will not be in vain if we discuss with the student the problems that affect him.
