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?

Today’s question:

Lynn O’Shaughnessy of The College Solution recently blogged about these statistics:

According to an annual UCLA survey of freshman, only 15.5% of freshman attend schools more than 500 miles away. Nationwide, 73% of students attend their own state schools.

Should more students try looking for colleges outside of their states? Do the advantages of staying in-state outweigh the advantages of  going out of state?

Today, in honor of the 10th anniversary of September 11th, we ask this question:

In the decade since 9/11, many of the millennial children who were in elementary school during the attacks are now in college or beginning their college searches.

How has your memory of 9/11 changed through these ten years, and what significance has it had on your role as an American student?
