Transcript So, What Are You Doing Tonight? Richard Estess, a junior Business major! chats on his cell phone outside the Science and Research building. It was very distracting walking around campus as everyone seemed to be talking to themselves. Especially confusing were the ear phones that allowed people to talk without holding the phone.

Dara Daniel, a junior Public Relations major, rests under a tree and converses on her cellular phone, coincidentally, in the Communications building courtyard. Ironically, it was virtually impossible to get a signal around the Communications building. All that communicating must have crowded up all the radio waves. Photo by Kena Alvarado 22> StUent Life We've all been a witness to one of the most common occurrences on campus: just as the professor is leading in to the most interesting and thought-provoking lecture in American history, the mood is broken and the train of thought derailed as someone's cellular phone begins chiming J.S. Bach's Toccata and Fugue in G-minor. As we plowed head-first into the new millennium, cell phones became a basic part of college life, as essential to current college students as slide-rules were to students of the last generation. Many students found that without a cell phone they would be out of touch with the ebb and flow of college life. On the one hand, cell phones were very useful for keeping in touch with family, friends, and fellow students. As the cost of owning and using a cell phone dropped, some college students found that they didn't even need another phone that plugs into the wall. Additionally, cell phones provided an aura of security on campus. However, many students were simply unwilling or unable to turn their cell phones off during classes. This led some professors and students to push for restrictions on cell phones in class. This movement grew as cell phone ringers diversified and became more distinct in a class full of students. Many professors went to interesting lengths to ensure that cell phones did not interrupt their lectures. James Watson, a sophomore history major, cited an interesting example: "The professor had grown tired of cell phones interrupting his class time, so he informed us that he would answer the next time someone called. Sure enough, he did, and from that point forward, everyone kept their cell phones silent." The future of cell phones on college campuses was certain, however, as most students appeared to support the added convenience and safety cell phones contribute to the university. It seemed as though professors are just going to have to grin and bear it when cell phones ring in their classes. Story by Matthew E. Caster Waiting for That Important Call! Senior Scott Pride studies History, his major, while making sure he doesn't miss a single call. While most professors adapted to cell phones interrupting classes by ignoring them, some took cell phone ringing prevention to extremes. One professor refused to finish teaching until the culprit was removed from class. Photo by Kena Alvarado Cell Pkc .23.
