Class Of 2016 Doesnt Use Tv And Gets News On Youtube

08.21.12 | Sarah Harnisch

Do you listen to radios, or watch t.v.? The incoming freshman class of 2016 doesn't. This year's high school and college freshman, born in 1994 or 1998,  have no need for radios, and they watch television everywhere except on actual tv sets. They get their news off Youtube. The students are also accustomed to seeing women in positions of leadership. They were born at a time when Madeline Albright was serving as the first female U.S. Secretary of State, and women have held the position for most of their lives. They're also less likely to identify with a specific religion. Many church denominations have been losing members, but membership is up at nondenominational churches.
