This week is welcome week at the University of Edinburgh, the school my husband is going to. We kept seeing things referring to “freshers”, he received e-mails urging him to “get your freshers wristband for welcome week activities” and to sign up for “freshers” events. What’s a “fresher”? According to the urban dictionary, fresher is a British word for a first year student at university. Ok, mystery solved.
Jeff got a shot of this vintage bus on campus welcoming the international students, and yes, he did buy the freshers wristband. He is referred to as a “mature” student and he has been asked if he is here to drop off his child for their freshman year, ouch. I, on the other hand, was carded at Tesco when buying a bottle of wine.
