Each August since 1998, Beloit College has released the Beloit College Mindset List. It provides a look at the cultural touchstones that shape the lives of students entering college this fall. It was originally created as a reminder to faculty to be aware of dated references, and quickly became a catalog of the rapidly changing worldview of each new generation. See a few items from this year’s list below.

  • Few in the class know how to write in cursive.
  • Fergie is a pop singer, not a princess.
  • Email is just too slow, and they seldom if ever use snail mail.
  • They never twisted the coiled handset wire aimlessly around their wrists while chatting on the phone.
  • John McEnroe has never played professional tennis.
