Understanding Traditional-Aged New Students with the Beloit College Mindset List
Will anything surprise you?
Trying to understand this generation of traditional-aged college students? The folks at Beloit College (WI) have been publishing an eye-opening Mindset List for several years that lists 75 characteristics of each incoming class. Topics run the gamut from politics to technology to world affairs to entertainment, and beyond!
The Mindset List is the brainchild of Beloit's Keefer Professor of the Humanities Tom McBride and Director of Public Affairs Ron Nief. Together, they offer valuable insights for parents, administrators and others who are continually trying to better understand today's students.
Take a peek at this year's list by heading to www.beloit.edu/~pubaff/mindset/. You'll also find archived lists from past years to better understand those older students/past students in your life.
