Class of 2016

Via Farnam Street, a list of cultural touchstones for the people entering University this fall. Highlights:

  1. Robert De Niro is thought of as Greg Focker's long-suffering father-in-law, not as Vito Corleone or Jimmy Conway.
  2. Bill Clinton is a senior statesman of whose presidency they have little knowledge.
  3. They have never seen an airplane “ticket.”
  4. For most of their lives, maintaining relations between the U.S. and the rest of the world has been a woman’s job in the State Department.

Created by Beloit College (The Buccaneers), the full list is here
