What’s Changed?

Phones only made phone calls and our music lived in low capacity disc storage. Less than 50% of college students had laptops and 1.3% had Smartphones or other internet capable handheld devices.

2016

Student body now uses smart phones with greater computing power than what was used to send astronauts to the moon. Laptops are abundant with 91% of students having laptops and 92% with internet capable smartphones.
