College Freshmen Advice: Learn Your Slang!

2009-August-11
By Martie Hevia | Blue Beach Song™

College freshmen, listen up, you might want to do a little studying before getting to college. After all, if you were to go to a foreign country, you would try to learn a few words and phrases to help you get by. In the same way, learning a little college slang might go a long way to helping you fit in or at least understand if someone is insulting you.

There are many books and sources online, but UCLA has been putting together a college slang dictionary for twenty years. The latest, UCLA Slang 6, was published recently on July 29, 2009.  (UCLA News Release: http://newsroom.ucla.edu/portal/ucla/schwa-slang-dictionary-marks-20th-95479.aspx)

To jumpstart your education, here are a few words:

  • Obama = cool
  • schwa = wow
  • napster = to interrupt
  • eargasm = hearing a beautiful sound
  • destroy an exam = do well on an exam
  • epic fail = “what a mistake”
  • presh = precious
  • recessionista = penny-pinching fashionista
  • FOMO = fear of missing out
  • bellig = belligerent drunk (rhymes with fridge)
  • UCLA = under construction like always

 

But, for all those parents out there, you will be happy to know that cool is still cool, at least according to UCLA.
