The tech_NO_lodge is committed to self-exploration and relationship building. We hope to discover through our Mayfield Lodge the extent of our dependence on social media and electronic communication. We are committed to giving up one technological form of communication for a week each month, reflect on our experiences individually and as a group, and share our findings with the Vanderbilt and Nashville communities. As we give up these things, we plan to take up more personal communication mediums. As an end goal, we hope to better understand what benefits and problems electronic communications present and use them more responsibly in our own lives.
