Continuing its annual tradition, Beloit College has released its Mindset List for the Class of 2008
. Our incoming traditional first-year students were born in 1986. Some of the highlights (there are fifty of these):
- Alan Greenspan has always been the head of the Federal Reserve.
- There have always been night games at Wrigley Field.
- On the TV they've always had Martha Stewart and Comedy Central; they've never seen Zamfir.
They've seen Oprah in her slender form; they've no idea who Phil Donahue is (was?).
