From the Cardinal Newman Society (see their feed on my sidebar):
Wyoming Catholic College is in the news recently because of its on-campus cell phone ban for students.
The ban, which has been in place since the founding of the faithful Catholic college, has all of a sudden become the focus of dozens of news organizations as diverse as YahooNews,The Malaysia Sun and Fox Philadelphia.
But as long ago as 2007, Inside Higher Ed wrote a piece on the cell phone ban with the lede, “Don’t try reaching a Wyoming Catholic College student by cell. Students can’t have cell phones on campus – a donated cattle ranch in western Wyoming’s Wind River Mountain Range – or in the surrounding towns.”
But perhaps the idea of living without a phone has become so unthinkable in recent years, that the fact that the Catholic college hasn’t changed, is, in fact, newsworthy.
Go see the rest of the piece over there! That is, use the link on the sidebar.

Remember the photo I took when I was at a conference in Phoenix? I visited the booth of WCC and saw this:
