Introduction: College dropouts represent an alarming waste of competent manpower. Personal problems of students may be a factor in the dropout situation, and may merit the attention of college staffs. College administrators are realizing that the American student is not the same as a college student of a century ago. The present day college student is an entirely different type, living in a changing and different world. The former concept of the purpose of higher education is not suitable. It emphasized the training of mental faculties. The newer concept of education is concerned with the whole individual.
