NBC News
Just as the Great Depression left a lasting mark on the generation that lived through it, the children of the Great Recession may already be shifting their world view about money, judging by a new survey that says about 80 percent of them are shouldering some or all of their college costs. "I think kids are stepping up and it requires a degree of financial responsibility," said Linda Descano, the president and CEO of Citi's Women & Co.

UK Students Still Satisfied But Effect Of Higher Fees Yet To Be Felt
University World News
U.K. students' satisfaction with their courses is being maintained, according to the 2013 National Student Survey. The survey, conducted annually by Ipsos MORI since 2005, gathers opinions from mainly final year undergraduates on the quality of their courses. Aimed at current students, the survey asks undergraduates to provide "honest feedback" on what it has been like to study their course at their institution. The 2013 survey shows that 85 percent of respondents are satisfied overall with their course — the same proportion as in 2012. A further 7 percent were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied, while 7 percent were dissatisfied.

No More Double-Spending
Inside Higher Ed
College students likely spend hundreds of thousands of dollars extra per year on buying rights for digital versions of readings to which they have free access. Some college and university libraries have been attempting to rein in the duplicative charges, which stem from journal articles and other assigned readings that students are told to buy for class even though the material is freely available to them through library holdings.

Study: Student Loan Debt Affects College Social Lives
The Huffington Post
Students who don't have debt looming over their heads are more likely to party and live it up during their college years, an Indiana University study found. Debt-free students spent less time studying, the study concluded, and more time invested in their social lives, extracurricular activities and partying. But they also networked and formed relationships that lasted beyond college. "These patterns could affect the social connections and networking students develop in college, where these relationships can lead to friendships, employment, marriage partners and other benefits," IU sociology graduate student Daniel Rudel said in a news release. Rudel completed the research with Natasha Yurk, also a graduate student in the IU department of sociology.

    College Students Are More Tech-Savvy Than We Thought
    EdTech Magazine
    Stephen diFilipo, CIO at Cecil College, spent months researching BYOD for the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research report, "The Consumerization of Technology and the Bring-Your-Own-Everything Era of Higher Education." He and co-author Eden Dahlstrom gathered a wealth of data, but one point in particular stood out: Most of the IT leaders surveyed expressed a desire to support the personal devices used on their campuses. Many colleges and universities don't try. It hasn't even been an issue at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in North Carolina because students there typically bring devices that they know how to operate and maintain.
