At YouthBeat®, we spend most of our time investigating trends among kids, tweens, and teens. Every year, we “graduate” a batch of 18-year-olds from our panel, but we don’t stop caring about them. The oldest members of Generation Z, 18-22 years old, are college-aged now. It’s a dynamic time of transition, discovery, and experimentation for young adults. We’re devoting this blog to the special condition of being college-aged in the U.S. today.
