Froshbook

Froshbook [frahsh·book] n. a book consisting of headshots of incoming first year undergraduate students organized by dorm, a sort of (mini) yearbook for a single class year. *ex., How do you know that guy? Did you see his picture in the Froshbook? *note: ostensibly the book functions as a tool to help first year students find and engage each other as they can be isolated by dorm or schedule, and to help Resident Assistants visually recognize their new charges, etc., but in reality it ends up being used as a dating guidebook. See Frosh. --- Facebook n.

*Editor's Note: Picture submission for the Froshbook was voluntary and as I personally hate being photographed I did not submit one. Most people electing not to submit a picture for inclusion were still featured in the Froshbook with his or her name accompanied by a stock "Not Pictured" image, but for whatever reason I was omitted entirely, which allowed me to arrive on campus as a complete unknown and which lead to an accusation of my "not being a Frosh" a mere three days after term start when an overzealous Frosh fellow asked what was my class year and didn't believe me when I replied truthfully. The guy responded by saying that he'd already memorized the Froshbook and I wasn't in it, so I couldn't be a Frosh. Besides, according to him, I was always in the company of "those Junior guys," a damning offense by his tone (in other words, I didn't hang out with the other Frosh in our dorm who had already self-segregated, in part due to Orientation). Considering I had never noticed or spoken to this guy before, it was an odd experience. Got to love those overachievers!?
