The college mindset: how the incoming freshman class sees the world
The annual list looks at cultural factors that help shape the lives of students.

For this year's incoming Freshman class, most were born in 1994 which means they are likely more familiar with Hillary Clinton than former President Bill Clinton.
They don't need radios and they watch TV on their laptops and smart phones. And to them, everything is digital including music, movies, and e-books.
