Where do first year undergrads go for information? (Top level)

Wordle: First year undergrad info sources

We asked a lot of first year business students for a one word answer to the question, "Where do you look first for information when you have an assignment to do?" Four words dominated the results with 'internet' being by far the most common.

I was surprised by the predominance of the word 'internet'. I expected to see more reference to Google, or possibly other search engines, but very few specified any particular site.
