Unwanted phones removed from ETSU dorms

Less than 1 percent of the roughly 1,800 phones in student dormitories at East Tennessee State University were in use this past school year, and those unwanted land lines have been removed, according to the school’s housing director.

“Most of the other institutions in the state ... have taken the phone lines out,” said Bonnie Burchett, ETSU director of campus housing and resident life.

Burchett said students use cell phones, tablet computers and programs like Skype for communication now.
