Notes that recent research at colleges and universities has suggested that some college students' academic performance might be impaired by heavier use of the Internet. Finds that heavier recreational Internet use was shown to be correlated highly with impaired academic performance. Notes that loneliness, staying up late, tiredness, and missing class were also intercorrelated with self-reports of Internet-caused impairment. (SG)
