    I think its a good idea because its such a powerful device but i think the university should pay for the device if someone chooses the phone. Besides. the contract is the expensive part.

    They could also include it in the price of tuition, much like some universities do. My millde son will be starting at Villanova this fall and all freshmen have to get a laptop (Dells for most- communicaitons majors - a Macbook) . They have to turn it in after 2 years and they get a replacement which they can then keep after graduation. WHile it appears its "given" to the students- the official stand its that its included in tuition.

    umm, the school isn't in anyway involved with the purchase of the phone/ipod... its simply covered by your financial aid now, just like a book or housing or whatever else.

    so no, higher education is not like prison.

    This is absurd. People can barely afford the outrageous book fees that are charged and now they are upping the criteria even more.

    Personally, I won't be attending this college (I don't make the requirements of course) however this is a good thing.

    BTW, I ironically live just 30 miles south of the campus

    MU is a good college :P

    so no, higher education is not like prison.

    prisons get a set amount of money from the government everyday for each person.

    colleges do too.

    prisons get extra money for transporting people to other locations, medical care, dental, etc.

    colleges do too.

    prisons get even more money for books, learning tools, training equipment, classes, etc.

    colleges do too.

    so.....

    if the college makes it mandatory, YOU charge it to the government in the form of college loans or grants, financial aid, whatever.

    the government then adjusts the amount of money that college is generating, and compensates them accordingly.

    bringing the cost from the government for each student up!

    making the college more money.

    and if you really believe "higher education" is its only purpose, then you are sadly mistaken.

    colleges are just as much of a business as hospitals.

    I think it's cool and I'd welcome it if I were a student there as well. Just like others have said it's no different then shelling out the cash for books, why not get a cool new gadget out of the deal that you can use much longer then a text book.

    Yes, either school sucks not because of academical achievements, but because of the sports they play, grow up and GO TO COLLEGE.

    Dumbasses.

    Anyway, free iPod Touch when you go to MU...Get the 32GB just for shits and grins?
