College Electronics - Music to Their Ears
RADNOR, PA.—A college dorm room somehow doesn't seem complete with only a bed and a closet. The traditional-age college student thrives on noise from stereos, televisions, VCRs, DVDs, cell phones, anything with a voice, buzz, beep or a whistle.
Cabrini College is a small, quiet liberal arts college outside Philadelphia. Quiet, that is, until the residence halls wake up. Conflicting tastes in music battle it out in the hallways, phones ring, pagers beep, video games come out, and televisions come alive. But which of these gadgets do the students consider essential?
College students are generally strapped for cash. So they all want the same thing: a bargain. Some, mostly the women on campus, bargain shop for what they want. And others, mostly the men, don't and hope to get a good deal at the first store they enter.
