                   Speaker: Arslan Ahmed
Defining the Problem
   The community college transfer student
    who seeks the bachelor’s degree but fails,

Explaining the Goal
   What would cause the community
    college transfer student to fail?
   We brainstormed for these possible
    factors.
   We came up with 8 hypotheses and
    formed 8 research teams.



                  Speaker: Arslan Ahmed

    failing to attain the bachelor’s degree

     attain the bachelor’s degree

Excessive Partying may play a significant role in failing to attain

What are our solutions?

   Time management: Take a study               Excessive Partying: No fraternities, no
    skills class in high school; college         dorm parties; find something else to do;

    scholarships; colleges offer more            more health services offered on campus;
    scholarships; demand federal govt.           having dorms and other residences
    help college students                        inspected for health problems

                                                Lack of Academic Engagement:

    Employment: Take class on time               academic environment in order to
