Every year, Beloit College puts out The Mindset List which “looks at the cultural touchstones that have shaped the lives of today’s first-year students”. And for those who haven’t been students in a while, it is guaranteed to make you feel like a walking, talking fossil. Here are a few interesting items from the List for the Class of 2010:
- A stained blue dress is as famous to their generation as a third-rate burglary was to their parents’.
- They have always known that “In the criminal justice system the people have been represented by two separate yet equally important groups.”
- Affluent troubled teens in Southern California have always been the subjects of television series.
