Failing College Students
Many college students fail college courses for different reasons. Some students do not understand how much work it takes to pass college courses. They or their family members may think it is a waste of time and money or even their parents may make them go to college. Students may also think college is just another responsibility that can hinder them from having any fun or going on with their lives. Many students have a lack of motivation, poor time management skills, and have other responsibilities that affect their attitude, their ability to focus, study, and to go to class causing them to fail their college courses.
Students may have a lack of motivation, because they feel forced to go to school rather than having a desire to go, which can cause them to dislike going to school. Student’s parents may feel like their children should go to college because this is one of the ways for them to achieve a better paying job. Students may have poor support system from family members which could cause a lack of motivation. Their family members may not understand the importance of a college education, so then the student could feel like there is no reason in going to college. The family member’s actions and motives can affect the student. The student must have a desire and prove to his/her family members that they can achieve their goal of a college education. If the student’s parents are making them go to college then it is up to them to make the best of the situation. The student’s attitude towards college can effect their motivation as well; they can either have a good attitude or a bad one. Attitudes have big effects on how a person acts towards a situation. Lack of motivation can also affect student’s mindset about college. They may think that going to college is pointless, and a waste of their time. All these different effects can cause students to fail their college courses.
