A lot can change in 40 years, especially on college campuses, according to the University of Illinois Daily Illini. "Imagine women always wearing skirts to class and being required to be in their residence halls for curfew at 11 p.m. on weekdays and 1 a.m. on weekends," the paper writes about a new UCLA study examining college trends of the past four decades. "Imagine men wearing suit coats and ties to a football game or carrying their books to class because backpacks were 'uncool.'"
So what are the trends on the Urbana-Champaign campus today? "During the winter, you see the girls with their North Face blazers and UGG boots," one female student says. "It's nearly impossible to see kids without iPods."Kenneth Terrell
