Thought this generation of college applicants was all about social media?
Think again, suggests a New York Times post on a session on students, technology and the college admissions process:
“Colleges say, ‘Like us on Facebook’ — but that’s my personal time, I’d rather not,” one high school senior said. “I’d like to find a time in my day where I don’t think about the college process,” she said to soft applause from a few sympathetic audience members.
The peer sitting next to her nodded. “Seeing a college on Facebook, it’s like, you’re in my face, and I’d appreciate if you weren’t.”
