  12. 12. 41% of the sample population say that they spend 6-15 hours socializing with their friends While only 1% confess to not spending any time with friends
  13. 13.  I think that by using the data given it is safe to say that administrators do not need to be overly worried about this class of students.  They are able to balance their responsibilities of studying, and working for pay while still maintaining a social life which is so important to the college experience.
