Geezer alert: The Beloit College
Mindset List.

Inside Higher Ed provides Beloit College's latest Mindset List—provided annually to tell us all what incoming freshman do and don't know. A few highlights:

--They have never used a card catalog to find a book
--Babies have always had a social security number
--They have always been able to read books on an electronic screen
--They have never understood the meaning of RSVP

Hey, I remember computer keypunch cards, which probably places me in the prehistoric realm...
