Abstract or Summary
  • In recent decades, there has been a tremendous change in the college student experience. In many ways this change has been driven by developments in technology, which have in turn changed the way students conduct research, socialize, and recreate. This thesis seeks to gain an understanding as to how Internet and videogame use impact the experience of college students. Included in this document is a review of literature pertaining to Internet and videogame use on college students. The author surveyed nearly 200 undergraduate students to compare daily levels of Internet and videogame use, and interpersonal competence as measured using Hood's (1997) Iowa Developing Competence Inventory. The author conducted a statistical analysis to determine whether a correlation existed between these elements. The results of this study as well its implications will be discussed further detail.
