Beloit College Study Finds Generational Differences

BELOIT (WIFR) -- For those entering college, life has always been like a box of chocolates; Andre the Giant, River Phoenix, and the Commodore 64 have always been dead; and O.J. Simpson has always been looking for Nicole Simpson's killer.

Beloit College has released it's annual mindset list for the incoming freshman class the list provides a cultural look at how lives have been shaped for the class of 2015. Most of the freshman class was born in 1993: meaning they're the first generation to take the word "online" for granted.

Other tidbits from the 75 item list: the class of 2015 have no memory of the first George Bush Presdiency, they don't understand the phrase don't touch that dial, they refer to LBJ as Lebron James, and Norm Frasier and Woody have never cheerfully frequented a bar in Boston during prime time.
