The Mindset List

Have you seen the Mindset List of the Class of 2016?

Beloit College puts this together every year. It’s a look at the incoming college freshmen every year and what their reality is. A great resource if you are writing YA.

Here’s the first few items on the list:

  1. They should keep their eyes open for Justin Bieber or Dakota Fanning at freshman orientation.
  2. They have always lived in cyberspace, addicted to a new generation of “electronic narcotics.”
  3. The Biblical sources of terms such as “Forbidden Fruit,” “The writing on the wall,” “Good Samaritan,” and “The Promised Land” are unknown to most of them.
  4. Michael Jackson’s family, not the Kennedys, constitutes “American Royalty.”
