Excerpt of interview with sophomore business major Korey Eller:
Q: What are your thoughts on society’s growing dependence on the media?
A: I think it’s a bad thing. I think it’s making everyone less communicative with each other. They rely on instant messaging. There are no personal touches; no people skills involved. I mean communication in the workplace, schools, and friendship circles… it’s just all fallen downhill to me because we’re all used to having everything right there on the internet right in front of us, so you just click a mouse instead of actually talking to somebody.
