Friday College Town Hall

In Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college, and you leave an answer in the comment field.

Today’s question comes from the 2011 National Survey on Student Engagement:

Only 70% of students frequently seek help when they do not understand course material.

Why don’t all students speak up if they don’t understand class information? What holds the other 30% back from seeking help?

Have a thought or an answer? Leave a reply below.

We’ve also asked our @Cappex Twitter followers to chime in! Here’s what people are saying on Twitter:

    they may think thats is a dumb question or they are just scard to get help! i know alot of kids that just try to do everything on there own and think that they dont need help when they really do.

    Many students do not speak up for help because they feel embarrassed to even have to ask for help. I know when I was in high school I did not like to ask for help because I was afraid my question was going to make people laugh at me, but I later found out that it is always best to speak up if you need help.
