The Scroll: It's time to pause and unplug

The Scroll: It's time to pause and unplug

By The Scroll editors

Dr. Carol Bruess has some advice for those of you who have a little break coming up: "Unplug yourself. Pause. Notice what happens."

That's unplug yourself as in turning off your cell phone, shutting down your computer and putting away your iPod.

Bruess and her colleagues recently gave that four-day assignment to their Communication and Citizenship course. The students thought it was a little crazy. To find out if they survived, read Breuss' report in The Scroll.

And if you've had your own "pause and unplug" experience lately, we'd love to hear about it! Submit a response to Bruess' blog and we'll publish it.
