Mindset List for the Class of 2019
Each August since 1998, Beloit College has released the Beloit College Mindset List, providing a look at the cultural touchstones that shape the lives of students entering college this fall. Here is a sample of this year’s list:
Since they have been on the planet:
-Hybrid automobiles have always been mass produced.
-Google has always been there, in its founding words, “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible.”
-They have never licked a postage stamp.
-Email has become the new “formal” communication, while texts and tweets remain enclaves for the casual.
-Hong Kong has always been under Chinese rule.
-They have grown up treating Wi-Fi as an entitlement.
-Their parents have gone from encouraging them to use the Internet to begging them to get off it.       
-If you say “around the turn of the century,” they may well ask you, “which one?”
-They have avidly joined Harry Potter, Ron, and Hermione as they built their reading skills through all seven volumes.
