That’s Some Mindset You’ve Got There

The incoming freshman class invades Whitewater starting next week [R U READY?!]. That also means that Beloit College has released their annual Mindset List for the Class of 2015. I both love and hate reading this list, and it will only get worse as I get older and the students get younger. While browsing through the list, there were several that jumped out at me:

→ #2 Ferris Bueller and Sloane Peterson could be their parents.

→ #11 More Americans have always traveled to Latin America than to Europe.

→ #15 O.J. Simpson has always been looking for the killers of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

→ #56 They’ve always wanted to be like Shaq or Kobe: Michael Who?

Which ones got you?

Thanks to Ronna for the link!

    7. Earlier, my grandfather’s Aunt Ada’s true electric car, a square black box she steered with a lever moving silently through town, distrustful of those “gas cars”?

    8. … earlier yet, large ocean-going ships (freighters, sail or steam)often overdue for arrival, weeks then months, some of them then never heard of or from again, presumably lost at sea–totally incommunicado thus?

    9., 10. …..
