Students are busy - they are attending classes, doing homework and studying for tests. When they have free time, it's unsurprising that they don't have much excess mental energy or money for pursuing hobbies. And even then it seems to me that a lot of activist groups are mainly student-run. So I don't think you're right.

This really depends on the school, program, and students. I teach video game programming courses, and these seem to attract many video game addicts who can't even stop playing games during class.
