Each August since 1998, Beloit College has released the Beloit College Mindset List, providing perspective for us old timers on how students just entering college see the world. For the Class of 2013:
4. They have never used a card catalog to find a book.
6. Salsa has always outsold ketchup.
8. Tattoos have always been very chic and highly visible.
35. Women have always outnumbered men in college.
36. We have always watched wars, coups, and police arrests unfold on television in real time.
51. Britney Spears has always been heard on classic rock stations.
54. Most communities have always had a mega-church.
