It's the time of year again for thousands of students to step foot into their first college class. That back-to-school mode also means Beloit College in Wisconsin released their annual Mindset List to help professors see things from their new students' perspective.
The list reveals that the Class of 2014 considers e-mail to be too slow, they don't know how to write in cursive, never wore wristwatches, and they don't send snail mail. Do you agree with any of these findings? Seventeen-year-old Jessica Peck from Portland, Oregon disputes two of them.
"Snail mail's kind of fun," Jessica says. "When I have time I like writing letters to friends and family. It's just a bit more personal. And yes, I write in cursive."
Co-creator of the list Ron Nief says one benefit of doing this list every year is being able to "look back and say, 'What were we getting so upset about?' A, kids outgrow it and B, in retrospect we realize it really wasn't that bad."
