    According to a new analysis the average IQ among undergraduate students today is 102, which represents a 17 point drop since 1939 and is barely above the population average (100).

    As college was opened up to the more of the public, the IQ scores should become more reflective of the general overall IQ of the public.

    So it is true. When you meet older people who got their degree in the 60s or 70s, they seems smarter than your average undergraduate.
