Post UTSA is legit
From the August 28th Express News-

Quote:
The new student union stays open later, and students hang out in the Roost game room and go to open mics, poetry jams and movie nights. The bookstore is twice as big and offers more UTSA merchandise. There is a technology store where students can buy laptops and discounted software, a UPS store, a Frost Bank, a Chili's restaurant, a convenience store and a family-owned hair salon called Rios Golden Cut.

“There are more options, making it easier for people to stay on campus and get the most out of college,” said Grace-Bridges. “The Millennials, they are a brand-name generation. Having a Chili's and all that adds to the environment that we are legit.” --Re'Shanda Grace-Bridges, assistant director of orientation

It's an education term. It's the group of kids that are now working their way through high school and college. See also: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I don't drive a Beemer to college and make all A's by applying minimal effort.

Educators in all their brilliance think it's totally cool to give in to this nonsense.

Millennials is the buzzword in Student Development Theory for the students that are now in attendance in higher education. They are the generation that came after "Generation X".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_Y

They are tend to delay growing up longer, they played soccer in leagues where everyone got trophies, and "their shit don't stink". Students don't fight for their grade because Mom and Dad will call the Department Chair (or professors) and bitch out the authority figures for them. "Billy was a Straight-A student through high school, it must be your fault because you can't reach him".

The burden is no longer on the pupil to learn from the master, instead the mentality has shifted to college as a service industry. Student paid tuition therefore a degree is expected regardless if they have actually learned anything. /Facepalm

What he said.

The parents are called "Helicopter Parents." They're called this because they jump out of a helicopter (i.e. no where) to save little Johnny's butt, rather than making him learn his lesson.

You wouldn't believe how many PARENTS of GROWN ADULTS have been in my office to gripe about grades and/or 21 year old Johnny's college situation.

It doesn't end there. When they get out of college, they expect to be CEO, make a bazillion dollars a year, and have the corner office at the top of the building.... NOW.

Don't get mad. Let me talk to some people. I think that we can create a 6 figure position for you somewhere.

So... if your folks didn't pay for college you're a millenial?

SWEET! I'm a millenial and didn't even know it. Do I get like a decoder ring or something?

My mother-in-law has rule for her poli sci classes...if a parent ever calls, emails, or visits her for any reason other than your death or hospitalization, it is an automatic F.

I have given up on counting how many parent calls begin with "I'm a lawyer and".

Haven't had that one yet.

Frankly, they can have my job. I live by the one box rule. I can pack everything in one legal size box and be gone in 5 minutes. I'd be happy to leave.

I call that the "Walk of Shame Rule". You never want to have anything in your office that you can't walk away from. Last thing you want to do is do the walk of shame carrying out your box of stuff. Whenever I see a new hire bringing all kinds of crap to stuff in their office, I always think they're a goner.
