If you've never asked directions, never had chicken pox, and tend to share everything you could probably impersonate a member of the class of 2017. Beloit College is out with its annual Mindset List.

In general, students are tech-savvy, but college freshmen also consider themselves multicultural and hold a non-religious sense of spirituality.

As for other signs for folks born in 1995: News has been crawling across the TV screen as long as they've been crawling themselves, getting a cellphone may be a bigger rite of passage than getting a car. Concerts have never been filled with cigarette smoke and chatting doesn't require talking. Gaga has never been baby talk, just as Java has never been just a cup of coffee and a tablet isn't something you just take two of in the morning.
