All of you college students in here, please tell me something...

This fall I will be returning back to the college campus as a student for the first time in over 3 years. So I don't feel way out of touch, is it common to see students using laptops during lectures?

So if I whip out my notebook and use a pen to take notes down, the kids won't throw spit balls at me? Because I do not feel like spending money right now on a laptop.

Yea, that'll do the trick too. Just don't whip out a Trapper Keeper or people may wonder what kinda bus you rode in on.

I think it depends on what you're doing.

If you're in math/science/engineering, pretty much nobody has one because they're useless.

Even in the arts like English/History, it's my experience that a very small minority of students has laptops in class.

Go up to a professional program like law and then almost everyone has one.

I wonder whatever happened to my Trapper Keeper. I thought it was so badass. The picture showed a tear in the sky with all these colorful hearts flying through it. The fourth grade was a big year for me.

As for laptops at school, it definitely depends on the class. I taught Latin at the college level, and it would have been ridiculous for anyone to bring one to my class. So much faster and efficient to write down grammar paradigms and correct translations than to try to type them up. I'd scope out your classes first, then maybe take one where it seems appropriate. If I remember right, some teachers in my department didn't allow them, so watch for that too.

I remembered those-- they were like, the iconic status of cool back in my classes in the 90s... practically everyone was willing to lose an arm/leg for one.

I finally got one in '99 lol. Blue with a zipper.


But on the subject of laptops, it's really common around my campus, and many uses them in classes... however, it's kinda spoiled them as they just play games and surf the web and whatnot while the professor's talking.
