Social Media Involvement With Ursinus

Description

This article is discussing the implementation of private phone service. Ursinus College ended its AT&T phone service and began one with STC Services. There were multiple benefits for students, like fewer billings and waiting on available operators. However, there were some drawbacks, as stated in the article. “The STC system isn’t with the system itself, it’s actually with some of the people that use it.” (Plitt, 4) This shows that the implementation of newer technologies did not come perfect, rather it sometimes was a trade-off between technological advances and hiccups that come with updated tech.
