Beloit’s Mindset List

Beloit College’s annual listing of the mindset of incoming freshmen is yet another reminder we can’t work from those crusty yellow lecture notes (not that any of you do of course!). Personally, I always find the class assumptions behind these types of lists fascinating. These students have never had to roll down the car window? Somehow I think many of our students still have access to cars that require rolling down the window. However, I love the recognition of media as historian while discussing that these freshman only know JFK and Malcolm X from the films. Be sure to realign your thinking and check out the list!
