The Pew Internet & American Life Project has released a
study of how current college students are using
computers and the Internet, with implications for the
future. A summary, with a link to the report, is at:

 http://chronicle.com/free/2002/09/2002091602t.htm

Some tidbits:

* The great majority (85%) of college students own their
own computer, and two-thirds (66%) use at least two
email addresses.

* College Internet users are twice as likely to have
ever downloaded music files when compared to all
Internet users: 60% of college Internet users have done
so compared to 28% of the overall population.

* On a typical day, 26% of college students use IM; 12%
of other Internet users are using IM on an average day.

College students say the Internet has enhanced their
education

* Nearly four-fifths of college students (79%) agree
that Internet use has had a positive impact on their
college academic experience.

* Almost half (46%) of college students agree that email
enables them to express ideas to a professor that they
would not have expressed in class ...

* Nearly three-quarters (73%) of college students say
they use the Internet more than the library...

* Two-thirds (68%) of college students reported
subscribing to one or more academic-oriented mailing
lists that relate to their studies. ...

College social life has been changed by the Internet

* Nearly three-fourths (72%) of college students say
most of their online communication is with friends.

* Over two-thirds (69%) of college students said they
are more likely to use the phone than the Internet to
communicate socially.

* A significant number of college students use publicly
accessible computers on campus for social purposes even
when they have their own computer at their disposal: 33%
find that the majority of their computer use occurs at
school and outside their homes or dorm rooms.
