What Is the Mindset of Incoming Beloit College Class of 2008?

By  | 

For incoming college freshmen this fall, one-hour photo processing has always been a reality, Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has always existed and there's always been a Comedy Channel.

Those are some of the findings in Beloit College's latest Mindset List designed to help faculty and staff relate to the latest crop of students, born in 1986.

Here's a sampling from the list put out by the Wisconsin school:

-"Heeeere's Johnny!" is a scary greeting from Jack Nicholson, not a warm welcome from Ed McMahon.

-The U.S. has always been a Prozac nation.

-Harry has always known Sally.

-They never saw Roseanne Roseannadanna on "Saturday Night Live."

-And Cher hasn't aged a day.
