A student in their first year of high school or college. In high school, freshmen are typically afraid on their first day, and throughout the first week, always get lost. I'm currently a freshman, and I got lost many times, but it really didn't take me that long to get used to the school. A freshman's worst enemy is the senior. Mostly, seniors are out to make fun of, prank, bully, or even 'own' a freshman, by making claims on one. At my school, most seniors and other upperclassmen are pretty respectful to us freshmen, thankfully. Some freshmen, like myself, hold great respect for our older peers, but I don't really see the point of bullying freshmen. Weren't they freshmen once, or were they born a senior/junior? What I hate even more are the sophomores who make fun of us. They were a freshman three months earlier, lol. Well, so anyway, most freshmen think they're all cool owning the middle school the year before, then reality hits when they go to high school the first day. But for me and many others, we are humble and mostly quiet, and rarely speak around the upperclassmen, and stay as respectful as possible- earning their respect is essential to high school survival. Freshmen should only talk when needed, and don't start a conversation with an upperclassman unless they're talked to first, because you never want to annoy one.
Example 1 (Freshman's Stupidity):
Freshman: "The first day of school. I'm gonna go say hi to the seniors."
*to seniors*: "Hi, friends!"
*freshman thrown in dumpster*
Example 2 (Freshman's Respect):
Senior: "Yo, you a freshman"
Freshman: *respectfully nods*
Senior: *notices this freshman is not outspoken and respectful* "Cool"
A first-year student at a high school or university. Tends to travel in large packs for protection.
There are two types of Freshman. The cocky kind that think they are the shit, and recieve a respective ass kicking. Then there are the ones that realise they are not the shit and give proper respect to upperclassmen.
a first year student in high school or college. For some reason upperclassmen seem to think that they are the lowest form of human beings ever to walk the earth.
upperclassman: Born 3 or less years ago than me?!? they deserve NO RESPECT!
me: weren't you a freshmen like 2 months ago?
i'm not a freshman, really
really skinny people that will, within the year, gain 20 pounds, lose their morals, and drink way too much
i have never seen so many skinny girls on campus....oh it's rush week....they are all the freshman
The next time you see someone harass a freshman, remind the offender that he too was once a freshman.
Usually a 9th grader in High School. Is scared out of their mind when they first come there.
Most of them boys are immature drinkers who are all into the "hot chicks".
The girls...try to be cool.
Some come to mind as more mature.
The freshman year, I think, does mature people.
(This happened to me, considering I don't look like one)
Him: YOU'RE a freshman??!!
Me: Mhm, yes.
Him: I have absolutely no respect for you anymore.
It is sad.
9th grader. some are cool, others are annoying. they get lost a lot during the 1st week of school. most of them mature by the end of the year.
On the 1st day of high school (freshman), I got lost on the way to 1st period. Now,(junior) I can find all sorts of places.
Freshman Type 1: Cocky, stupid, and immature. Probably think that they're still big, even though they're lurking in the shadows of second-year seniors who want to kick their asses.
Freshman Type 2: Quiet and respectful people who despise their counterparts. Make a decent attempt to fit in with the mature people on campus. Often keep their mouths closed until sophmore year.
Type 1: (Making loud siren noises at the lunch table)
Type 2: Dude, can you shut up? you're the reason why people hate freshman.
Type 1: Heeeellll naw. You wanna go?
(Upperclassmen steps in and proceeds to beat the shit out of freshman 1)
