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 freshman is usually a student in their first year of high school. They enjoy stopping in the middle of the hallway to hug their friends during the 6 minute breaks you have between classes. They occasionally think that they are cooler than everyone else, though this does not apply to all freshman.
Freshman girl 1: OH MY GOD!!! JENNIFER! IT'S BEEN LIKE AN HOUR SINCE I LAST SAW YOU!!!

Freshman girl 2: LET'S BLOCK THE HALLWAY AND ANNOY THE SHIT OUT OF EVERYONE WHO HAS TO WALK ALL THE WAY ACROSS CAMPUS!!

Freshman girl 1: OKAY!!!

One of the best, and worst, of the classes in highschool. As 8th graders, these kids were used to receiving respect from younger kids. But as freshman, these kids are now used to receiving 1-3 things: Respect, Bullshit, and for some, Cock. Some freshman see themselves for who they are and respect their fellow upperclassmen, and in return receive LOTS of respect. Others, though, enter highschool with the "I'm better than you" mentality that earns a freshman nothing but well deserved bullshit. Some overly proud freshman are even exiled by their own classmates because they refuse to put up with them. Then, there's those few whorish young freshman who look 18 and go cock hunting. Wow, are we proud of them!
Freshman 1: Hey man, what's up?
Junior 1: Not too much man, nice to meet you!
(Respect = earned)

Freshman 2: Get outta my way!
Senior 1: Whatta bitch.
(Respect NOT earned. Let the Bullshit commence!)

Freshman 3: Ah! I love it!
Senior 2: How old are you? *Shrugs and continues*

Most of the freshman I'm talking about are usually in the 9th grade in high school. There are two types of freshmen:
Type one:
Cocky,self-centered bitches who have not grown up since junior high, and all they care about is getting laid by the senior guys/girls and act like retards for the first 9 months of the year, and may stop just in time for sophomore year or continue to do this, flunk out and end up working at taco bell or taking care of their 2.3 children from their pregnancy during their junior year.
Type two:

Quiet, respectful, kind souls who only want to go to school and go home. They either care about school and/or athletics and end up being successful in school and in real life. They hate the type one kids since they make the freshman name bad, and end up beating their behinds.
A conversation between two freshman girls:
Jackie (type 1): AAY what up, I'm in high school now! I'm gonna sleep with, like, the entire football team!
Andrea (type two): please shut the hell up, your the reason why that upperclassmen hate us, and your just being a thirsty thot. Just because you are a freshman, doesn't mean you are all that.
Jackie: Whatever, you stuck up prude, I'm gonna be the envy of all the hot upperclass men and girls are gonna hate me because I'm more prettier them, and I'm going to rule the school!
Andrea: Ok then, have it your way then, but don't come crying to me when you end up alone, possibly pregnant and a STD.
( Jackie ends up flunking her freshman year, ended up with an STD and gets knocked up by her "ex-boyfriend")

A poor student in grade 9 who's intelligence and competance is always underestimated. The older grades and sometimes teachers will not rest until this students soul has been sucked out slowly through their teeth.

The older students and teachers will pass this off as good fun, but that is a pathetic excuse. They could be smarter or more mature than some of the other students, but it dosen't matter just because of their grade.
Older student: Hey, look, it's a happy, motivated freshman!
Other students: Get em!

A derogatory term used for someone going into their first year of highschool (or college).
Upperclassman 1: Did you hear about that guy that who walked into the girls bathroom?
Upperclassman 2: Freshman

The new kids in high school. These kids often still think school is like middle school, and are the perfect victims for pranks and torment like wedgies, swirlies, purple nurples, wet willies, noogies, and being stuffed into lockers.
I used to torment freshmen at every opportunity I got. From hanging wedgies on the flagpole to stripping them naked and parading them into the crowded hallways, I was always making sure freshmen were thoroughly humiliated throughout the school years.
