An e-mail blast just went out from SUU and prospective students have been answering in force -- from their Blackberry.
I've had at least 10 students answer this e-mail with the tagline at the bottom indicating it was from their Blackberry/PDA.
Can someone tell me why a HIGH SCHOOLER has to have a Blackberry? I don't have a stinkin' Blackberry. I don't feel I need to check my e-mail/blog/Facebook at every moment of the day. I don't feel the need that a 16 year-old does either.
My other favorite high schooler moment from last week:
I actually had a student e-mail me with great concern about paying for college because, I quote, "I have to pay for my phone, private lessons, prom, drivers ed, my cap and gown..."
All I can say -- It better be one he#$ of a prom to delay going to college! Hope your prom can get you a job, further your life's ambitions & help you become your best self.
