Like many college students, Jose Juarez carries a pocket-sized computer that lets him watch movies, surf the Internet and text-message his friends. He's part of "Generation M" -- kids born after 1985 who grew up connected to the media, from video games to cell phones. "For us, it's everyday life," said Juarez, an 18-year-old freshman at California State University, Sacramento. However, not all of Generation M can synthesize the loads of information they're accessing, educators say.

Eric, Sacramento State is referred to "CSUS," not "CSU."
"CSU" refers to the whole California State University System, which includes schools such as San Francisco State (SFSU), Sonoma State (SSU), Cal Poly, and so on.
What are you referring to, Sac State or the entire 23 University CSU system?
