2007 Beloit Mindset List released

August 22, 2007

Most of 2007's incoming freshmen were born after the demise of the Berlin Wall, have never lived in a world without mainstream rap music, and have never known MTV to play actual music videos.  This year's Beloit College Mindset List focuses on the Class of 2011, born in 1989.  For them, water has always come in bottles, car windows have always rolled down at the push of a button, Wal-Mart has always been bigger than Sears, and the World Wide Web has always existed. The List | The Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required) | Inside Higher Ed
