Regis Jesuit has always been a place can call home. Those people are seeing there home change, and not for the better. This year is the first year students have been using iPads in school, and it seems to have changed the behavior of the average freshman.  Junior Matt Peppercorn noticed a difference in the freshman compared to last year.

“It seems that they are always inside, glued to there iPads. They use to go outside and try and talk to other people,” he said.

Matt loved his freshman year and said a lot of freshman look like they just want to be on their iPads. He was always talking to somebody. He was making so many new friends but all of this years freshman are not making friends the way he was. Matt only meets freshman through sports now because all of the freshman shy away from every body else. He has noticed a change in the Brotherhood.

“The brotherhood is about being with your brothers and interacting with your brothers. There just isn’t as much of that anymore,” he said.

He wants this years freshman to have the same experience he had. Matt said the Brotherhood doesn’t look the same as it did two years ago. He said with the introduction with iPads they are limiting freshman to meeting new people. Not only are these freshman limiting themselves, but there classmates around them as well. He doesn’t want to see them grow up by just being stuck to their iPads. Some of them are not forming social skills like he did. He doesn’t want to see the place he loves change the way he thinks it will if people won’t change.
