New college students all over the country this week are asking each other what kind of music they listen to, but Smith College took the idea a little further and asked all new students. After surveying the Facebook pages of its 570 incoming first-year students, Smith boiled all the likes and shares down to a 28-song playlist. Is Beyoncé on there? Of course. What about Coldplay, Bob Dylan and the Mountain Goats? You bet.
The entire list is available on Spotify, where the rest of the world can mouth the words to One Direction’s “Diana” alongside at least one Smith student.
