A Generation of American Men Give Up on College: ‘I Just Feel Lost’ I found this fascinating. I had no idea it had gotten this bad. The percent of women and men in college is 60/40. 50% more females than males. That is astonishing to me. Is this bad? Good? Doesn't matter? It seems to me that those worried about white male privilege, with stats like that the problem will likely work itself out. What I'm not clear on is what are the deficit in men doing?
