CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As many as one in three first-year college students don't make it back for sophomore year.

The reasons vary, from academics, to money or other personal issues.

But a study recently released by U.S. News and World Report shows some North Carolina schools are doing a great job at getting those students back.

The average freshman retention rate for Duke is 97 percent.

UNC-Chapel Hill has a 96 percent rating, and at Wake Forest 94 percent of freshman come back.
