Juggling with course work:

Some students are born with silver spoon in their mouth, other work hard to support them self and education and sometime family.

there is always one kid who is hiding itself from everyone, and especially teacher. The person tries not to make eye contact with anyone. The problem with these type students; they are scared to express them self and they think that something wrong might happen. Although they have idea, but they don’t know how to express it in public.

Making poor decision making:

When students select major; most of them make great mistake in selecting it. student selects there major thinking about short term benefit such as major which will benefit in 2 or 3 years, but in reality we need to think about the major which will going to benefit in longer term and will be popular and beneficial in next 10 years because by the time we will be graduating that will going to be our time; not the short term major.

Poor education environment:

Sometime education also limit student from graduating. Sometime instructor are making their own rule, which make it difficult to pass. Late Registration date also make student demotivate to continue taking classes because  they end up taking more classes  then they were suppose to take.
