Beloit Mindset List shows generation gap

Posted:
(WAOW) -

Remember when suitcases had to be carried instead of rolled? Or, when there were tan M&M's instead of blue ones? Well, this year's college freshman don't.

The Beloit College Mindset List is a series of 75 references. It's meant to remind teachers that college freshman see the world in a much different way.

For example, the class of 2016, born mostly in 1994, have never lived in a world where Kurt Cobain was alive. They have no need for radios, and watch TV everywhere except on an actual TV set.

The Mindset List comes out every year, and every year local teachers say it surprises them just how big that generation gap is getting.
