What the class of 2016 knows as they head to college

Tuesday, Aug 21, 2012

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.

The list  was originally created as a reminder to faculty to be aware of dated references, but It quickly became an internationally monitored catalog of the changing worldview of each new college generation.

This year’s entering college class of 2016 was born into cyberspace and they have therefore measured their output in the fundamental particles of life: bits, bytes, and bauds - which makes the list released this year profound for those of us who were born to a much different world, without all of the digital connections.

Bobby Rich and the Morning MIX discuss the list ... have a listen and let us know what you think.
