According to Betabeat:
Northern Illinois University enacted an Acceptable Use Policy that goes further than banning torrents, also denying students access to social media sites and other content the university considers "unethical" or "obscene".
So, you're in college, and you can't connect with people on Facebook while using the WiFi in the dorms. You also can't do anything "political" on the internet, limiting a group of very impressionable young voters.
But WORST OF ALL, is that NIU is apparently banning Wikipedia as well. Which is a shame, because Wikipedia is amazing in every possible way.
I'd like to think no students is dumb enough to actual quote an editable article like Wikipedia, but any college kid worth a damn knows how to work the sources at the bottom of a Wiki page to get what they need. College would have sucked for me without Wikipedia.
Boo you, NIU. Boooooooooo.
