TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - New this morning, a perspective on the Class of 2018.  

Officials at Beloit College in Wisconsin have released the school's annual mindset list.  It is a non-scientific compilation, meant to remind teachers that college freshmen see the world in a much different way. 

Some of the notable entries on the list: 

Most of 2014 college freshmen were born in 1996; the September 11th attacks happened when they were in kindergarten; for them Bill Gates has always been the richest man in the U.S.; cloning has always been a fact, not science fiction; they have never used netscape as their web browser, and when they see wire-rimmed glasses, they think Harry Potter, not John Lennon.

    For the first time, shopper in America are likely to make more purchases on line than in brick and mortar stores. It's a shift which has been coming for years but this is likely to be the first time it's crossed the threshold. While the effect on big retailers can be mitigated somewhat by on line offerings, it's not quite as easy on smaller, local stores.
