Class of 2009 Mindset (Beloit College)

Every year, Beloit College publishes the Beloit College Mindset List, offering a snapshot of the worldview of their incoming freshman class.

For this year's crop of incoming freshmen, who were born in (gulp) 1987:
  • They don't remember when "cut and paste" involved scissors.
  • Heart-lung transplants have always been possible.
  • With little need to practice, most of them do not know how to tie a tie.
  • Condoms have always been advertised on television.
  • They may have fallen asleep playing with their Gameboys in the crib.
  • Bill Gates has always been worth at least a billion dollars.
  • They have grown up in a single superpower world.
  • Irradiated food has always been available but controversial.
  • Snowboarding has always been a popular winter pastime.
  • America's Funniest Home Videos has always been on television.
