Abstract: This study aims to determine the effect of internet technology on student characters, as well as the influence of social intercourse patterns on their characters. The study used a survey method of 77 students at a religious school in Cilacap, Indonesia. Data were collected using questionnaires, interviews, and observation techniques. The results showed; First, exposure to internet technology has a negative effect on student character. The higher internet technology exposure, the worse students character. This is indicated by the correlation coefficient of -0.507 and is significant at the significance level of 0.05. Second, the social intercourse pattern affects the character of students. The tighter of social intercourse pattern, the better the character of students, conversely the more free the students’ social intercourse, the worse their character. This conclusion is obtained from the correlation coefficient of 0.737 and is significant at the significance level of 0.05. Third, exposure to internet technology and social intercourse patterns simultaneously have a significant effect on student character. This conclusion is obtained from the multiple correlation coefficient of 0.752, which is significant at the 0.05 level.
