Beloit College Mindset List
Every year, Beloit College of Beloit, Wis., puts together a list of the cultural touchstones that shape the lives of that year's college freshmen, cataloging the changing worldview of each new generation. The Mindset List was created in 1998 for the class of 2002. Past lists include references to the band Nirvana, the Caramel Macchiato coffee drink and South Africa's official policy of apartheid. Every Mindset List dating back to 2002 is available on the site.
