Beloit College Mindset List

The 2008 Beloit College Mindset list is up. If you’ve never heard of this, it’s a list of facts and bullet points about the “traditional student” (~age 18) who is beginning college this fall.

For example:

19 films have never been X rated, only NC-17.
20 The Warsaw Pact is as hazy for them as the League of Nations was for their parents.

and

31 They have never been able to color a tree using a raw umber Crayola.
32 There has always been Pearl Jam.

It’s a great list. I suggest reading it entirely.
