freshman, sophomore, junior, senior

Post by James Trotta »

I spent my freshman year at a community college because my high school grades were weak, it was cheap, and I had no idea what I wanted to do. I transferred to Hoftrsa University after my freshman year. I couldn't transfer all my credits but I still had enough to enter Hofstra as a sophomore. My sophomore and junior years I took mostly music classes because there were so many requirements for a music major. I took some English classes but being an English major didn't have many required courses. My senior year, I dropped the music major and took all English classes (and yoga). When I graduated I still had more music credits than English credits but I had a BA in English and nothing in music.

-I'm trying to study harder than last year because now I'm a sophomore and I can't keep on playing.
-When I was a freshman, every culture of university was new and marvelous to me.

When I was a freshman I was scared about being in a new environment.
When I was a sophomore I was excited because I was a upper classeman.
When I was a junior I was worried about my future.
Now that I'm a senior I just wish I was a freshman again.

You can spot a freshman just by their appearance. They look so excited.
On the other hand, seniors look so tired. They look like they're stressed out.
As a sophomore myself, I worry I will become a junior that has nothing prepared.

When I was freshman, I didn't study very hard and I enjoyed the first year of my university life.
This year I'm a sophomore, and I think that the level of study became increasingly difficult.
Next year I'm going to be a junior. I think that next year i have to study very hard.
At the senior year I have to do my best to find a job.

When I was freshman, I got ace almost of the sebjects. But it wasn't kept since I became sophomore.
And now, as a junior, I'm trying to do the best for myself to get ace them. I want I'll kept this mind by senior.

I wish I could be freshman again. However, I'm sophomore and right now I'm just fed up with taking 20 credits this semester. My friend , who is a junior now, says I might have to start studying for FLEX and all the graduate courses, because she has seen some seniors disqualified for the graduation when they flunked them.

Freshman year was the best time during my high school year.
It was still fun when i became sophomore but i had to start studying hard.
Junior year was the worst. i had to study every day.
Thank god there are no senior in Korean high school.

In Korea freshman is called 1st grade, sophomore is called 2nd grade, junior is 3rd grade and senior is 4th grade.

I've experienced being a freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior. Of all them, being a senior kicked butt

In 2006, I was a real fresh freshman..but I turned to hopeless sophomore soon and finally I got one and half year off.
Now I'm a refreshed junior hoping becoming senior without getting any trouble.

Now, I'm a senior. I hope to go back when I was a sophomore, not freshman. Because freshmen don't know well about school life, sophomores can enjoy well.

I was acted very stupidly when I was a freshman but I gradually improved my characteristics and lookings when I became a sophomore. When I was a junior at Uni. I had little friends since I had just returned from millitary but the next year as a senior I was at least left with some friends.
