The computer has become one of the most important and influential luxuries of this generation Young people use computers every day for school work and entertainment They are the first generation to have become computer literate as early as the onset of adolescence For most of their lives they have used computers so it is not surprising that our generation has become highly dependent upon them Frustration usually occurs when one can not get access to their computer In college dorms students get upset when Internet service is down for even an hour While off-line many of these stranded students dial in every minute to see if the network is back on-line Occurrences like these show that this generation can be defined as overly computer dependent Computers are becoming more of a necessity than ever to higher education Universities make it clear that computers are crucial for success This is demonstrated by the ever-growing number of course web pages and increasing use of student e-mail Computers also facilitate communication in large lecture halls where sometimes students find it impossible to talk with their professors E-mail has become the most efficient way by which teachers and students interact However one can argue that e-mail is an artificial substitute for student-teacher contact After all we did come to college to get an education from superior individuals in their subject area E-mail seems to defeat the purpose of this idea because anyone can e-mail but not everybody can go to a world renowned professors office and have a conversation about the material being discussed in class Sometimes entire classes are on a web page These students need not even go to class because they know the lecture notes will be on the class web page along with the practice midterms and finals The fact that computers make these things easier reinforces the computer owners dependence Furthermore students no longer have to do research outside
