Feeling Old??? — 2003
Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly
change things. Each year the staff at Beloit College in Wisconsin put
together a list to try to give the faculty a sense of the mind set of
this year's incoming freshmen.
Here's this year's list:
a. The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were
born in 1983. If they are 20
b. They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.
c. Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

e. The CD was introduced the year they were born.
f. They have always had an answering machine.
g. They have always had cable.
h. They cannot fathom not having a remote control.
