Michele Rosario's curator insight, March 13, 2014 11:04 AM

As I read this article, I thought I was going to get a student's perspective on how college faculty don't understand them, but instead the get the exact opposite.  What I see is a college advisor explaining how the personal lives of college students aren't taken into consideration.  As she reports, she advised a very promising student to get a PhD with full tuition benefits, only to later find out that that student dropped out because of extreme financial issues and a mom that was dying.  I guess what the advisor lacked was the student's financial and personal background.
