Since its Tuesday morning release, the annual Beloit College Mindset List has received stateside attention in media outlets as diverse as Good Morning America, NPR’s All Things Considered, and The Chronicle of Higher Education, not to mention the countless water-cooler conversations it’s certainly spurred. Its creators, Tom McBride and Ron Nief, say the list has garnered quite a bit of global attention as well.
Tom and Ron have been doing interviews non-stop since Monday, and are pleased to know of the recognition of Beloit College though they often have to explain where Beloit—and occasionally Wisconsin—are located.
“Coverage is truly international this year with interviews in Colombia, Canada, and Australia and a copy of the story in Greek,” Ron says. Catch the Mindset List authors live today (Friday, Aug. 20) on MSNBC at 2:40 p.m. CDT, and Saturday at 10 p.m. live on the Nick Digilio Show on WGN Chicago, Radio 720.
