Colleges Confront the Simple Math That Keeps Students from Graduating on Time
HONOLULU — Angie Anderson loves being a college student.
She just doesn’t want to be one forever.
Anderson is a double major in English and theater in the honors program at the University of Hawaii. She commutes an hour each way every day to the campus in Manoa, works as a peer advisor, tutors student athletes, and has a third job performing on a “pirate ship” for tourists. She’s also part of a student improv group whose shows start as late as 11 p.m. to accommodate members with commitments like hers.
