    Party 6+ hours a week 21.4% – 26.5%
    Volunteer services 88.5% - 62.9%
    Exercising/Sports 53% - 34%
    Jeffrey R. Young wrote this article in which he points out that…

  • 12. It is a problem for college administrators because if they randomly select a student from the sample, what is the probability that the student actually considers himself in the top 10%, above average, or below average categories
    Somewhat of a concern for the incoming group but time management should be a major focus because that seems to be what is affecting most of the students.
    Why is this a risk for college administrators?
