Transcript The Popularity of the Internet The Information Highway It seemed anything could be done electronically. Students at the University of Houston had many opportunities to keep up with the times at various computer sites on campus. In fact, about 31,900 UH computer accounts were registered with the school's central computing site — an average of about one account for each student enrolled. The Internet had become a vital part of everyday life for most students. Computer labs were never empty, because students were constantly doing research, checking e-mail or writing reports. Sophomore communication major Stephanie Simon said she used the computer labs mostly to send and receive e-mail. "I have lots of out-of-state friends and e-mail is great for me because that way I don't get huge phone bills," Simon said. Amanda Oliver, a freshman University Studies student, said she used the labs to check her e-mail and also for entertainment purposes. Before Oliver came to UH, she "never really used the Internet, but now I use it all the time. It's addictive!" Perhaps Oliver was describing the millions of Web sites that could be explored on the Internet — a page for practically any interest could be found. Chat lines were also popular because these allowed users to share opinions with people from all parts of the world. The Internet also had many other uses, from shopping to ordering flowers to research. Krishna Azur, a freshman University Studies major, said she liked to use the Internet to do research for reports. "It's great that all the information is in one place because it's really easy to find what you need," she said. But it's not just students who use the 'Net —professors also rely on it as well. Included in many syllabi were e-mail addresses and even addresses to professors' Web pages. Some even posted class notes on their Web page in case a student missed a class or wished to look over the professor's own notes. At this rate of growth, the Internet could soon replace regular U.S. mail, telephones and libraries, and at UH, many students expect to rely on it more than on other services available to them on-campus. "I have lets of out-of- state friends and e- mail is great for me because that way I don't get huge phone bills, Stephanie Simon, sophmore December Dr. Liz Westin, assistant optometry professor, instructs students on how to take advantage of the internet to gain better knowledge in their field. Every University of Houston student has free access to the internet. Photo by Pete Medrano The Information Super Highway 4
