College Offers Incentive to Log Off: William Woods University (Fulton, Mo) has begun offering students $5,000 to log off their computers and "log on to life." Worried that students are logging in too much computer time, this liberal arts college will offer new freshman a tuition rebate for attending campus culture events or joining organizations. Entering freshmen will sign a contract agreeing to attend events in exchange for points. 45 points are required to receive the $5,000 rebate. Source: NY Times (May 5)
