Why less studying?

http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2010/8/22/why-are-college-students-studying-less/standards-have-fallen-in-universities

My study-time stealers were, in order of time taken:
1) Work. At least 25 hours per week
2) Volunteering (so I could get into that important grad school)
3) Exercise (to maintain my sanity)
4) Friends (because…well, I’m human)
5) Ok, the internet. I’ll admit.

How to revamp this? Decrease tuition costs, get rid of wireless in classrooms so students can’t cruise facebook during class, and as far as the exercise and friends…I think those are ok.
