These distinctions matter to me, though.  I think it's important to
know the patterns of usage by the students and strive for a balance.
If a learning center sees 100 students one time each, there may
be an implication that the students were not satisfied and did not
come back.  If a learning center sees 5 students 20 times each,
there may be an implication that the center is serving a very
narrow and overly needy population.  I don't know what the ideal
balance is, but I'd like to see variety.
