look up any word, like timebomb:
 
21.
first year students in college, formal way of saying 'bottom of the food chain' or 'light weight'.

Freshmen usually travel in cluster groups. Said cluster groups are spotted easily, due to the large assortment of unnecessary school supplies in which the freshmen carries with them at all times.

Freshmen can also be mistaken for mentally challenged alcoholic gremlins. This is not a representation for all freshmen; however most of them fit this description accurately.
There is a very rare endangered species of freshmen. This breed is commonly known as 'that cool freshman'. That cool freshman is an individual whom most already assume are an upperclassmen due to their seasoned alcohol tolerance, common sense and ability to function off three hours of sleep without feeling the need to tell everyone about how tired they are.
'are those girls transfer here? i've never seen them before'
'no, they're freshmen'
'how do you know?'
'dude, they're both carrying three notebooks, sticky notes, pencil sharpeners and graphing calculators. nobody buys all that shit in college. one notebook and a pen is good enough.'
'oh, you're right! hey, did you invite that cool freshmen to the kegger tonight?'
'fuckin' right i did! the little bastard drank me under the table last night. he's crazy!'

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.

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)

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.
