MARYVILLE, MO (2009-07-24) Cultural changes drive two changes at Maryville's University.
This fall when classes start back up, students at Northwest Missouri State will no longer have land-line phone service in their residence hall rooms.
University officials say 90 percent of students nowadays have cell phones.
Those living on campus without cell phones can still opt for a land-line phone in their room; however, they'll have to pay for it rather than the University.
The school says this will be a cost savings of around 3 hundred thousand dollars each year.
Another sign of the times: the campus at Northwest will go smoke-free next year.
This means all areas- outside and in- will be designated "No Smoking" for all visitors, students and faculty and staff.
Northwest plans on launching a series of educational programs in the following months to prepare the University community for next year's change.
