The latest story on our 'Eyes on Youth' page shows the tremendous growth underway in the video game industry. Universities are already reacting to the trend by creating courses and even degree programs in video game design. For 'Eyes on Youth', VOA correspondents Brian Wagner, Suzanne Presto, Barry Unger, Crystal Park, Barry Newhouse, and John Featherly look at the interests motivating young people today as they work to shape their world. We also offer stories about immigration, internships, social networking web sites, the Peace Corps, the ongoing rise in digital music sales, top U.S. colleges and their costs, and a profile of a U.S. teenager who is mayor of a town in the midwestern state of Michigan.
