Class of 2018 ‘mindset list’ released

Beloit College released its annual “mindset list” that provides insight into the experiences of the first-year students enrolling this fall. Some selections from this year’s list:

• When they see wire-rimmed glasses, they think Harry Potter, not John Lennon.

• The water cooler is no longer the workplace social center; it’s the place to fill your water bottle.

• During their initial weeks of kindergarten, they were upset by endlessly repeated images of planes blasting into the World Trade Center.
