Dr. Cedrick May Cited in New York Times

Dr. Cedrick May is cited in a Sept. 27  New York Times article entitled "Technology and the College Generation." Here is an excerpt: "He [Dr. May] soon learned that the students did not know he had changed the reading assignment because they did not check their e-mail regularly, if at all. To the students, e-mail was as antiquated as the spellings 'chuse' and 'musick' in the works by Cotton Mather and Jonathan Edwards that they read on their electronic books. 'Some of them didn’t even seem to know they had a college e-mail account,' Dr. May said. Nor were these wide-eyed freshmen. 'This is considered a junior-level class, so they’d been around,' he said."
