  2. Hispanic retention rates show no consistent patterns- possibly due to relatively small N counts
  3. Asian American retention rates have remained relatively stable during this time.
  4. White student retention rates dropped fro the class of 1990, recovered slightly for the class of 1991, then had a downward trend for the classes of 1992 through 1995.
