This article reports on a survey on Internet use behavior and attitude of college students. Data were collected using a questionnaire developed after a related literature review. A total of 800 students from four campuses of Leadership College's network were chosen for the survey. Demographics (sex, age, educational level) and reasons for Internet use, availability of computer and Internet at home, training in Internet use, most-used search engines and email services, as well as attitudes of students were analyzed. Students acknowledge the worth of the Internet for learning and sharing.
