'Mindset' for the class of 2018

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.
