Forum: Millennial Generation & Beyond

Clash of the Generations

Join us on Monday, Nov. 18 -- Noon to 2 p.m. -- in the Michael J. Adanti Student Center, Grand Ballroom, for:

"READY OR NOT, CONNECTICUT, THE MILLENNIAL generation is HERE!...

...AND THE GEN EDGERS AREN'T FAR BEHIND."

The Millennial Generation -- those born roughly between 1982 and 1995 (some say it extends to those born up to 2000) -- may be the most analyzed in American history.

Those born from 1996 and later are often considered to be part of the post-Millennial Generation, sometimes referred to as Generation Edge, Generation Z, Net Gen and Next Gen.
