Abstract—This study determined how Filipino College students in Lyceum of the Philippines University utilized their computers, the reasons behind the utilization and the differences of students enrolled in board and non-board degree programs in terms of academic performance, health and behavior and how they differ in their reasons of computer usage, frequency per week and average hour per day of computer utilization. Descriptive type of quantitative research method was used in the study for 1,035 proportionately stratified randomly selected students from ten (10) different colleges. Results showed that students enrolled in non-board programs were spending more time in computer than students in board programs. For educational purpose is the primary reason of both groups in computer utilization. However, students from non-board programs have higher possibility of utilizing the computer for entertainment purposes than those from the board programs. Majority of the students enrolled in Board programs have significantly lower GPAs while those enrolled in non-board programs have higher possibility of encountering behavioral problems. One-third of the students were suffering from negative health effects of computer utilization no matter long or short they spent time in online and offline activities.
