What is freshers?
"Almost exactly one year ago, a very excited but rather lost me arrived at Leeds. It was also around this time when I first heard about Freshers. People kept saying things like ‘see you at Freshers’ or ‘should we meet at Freshers?’ and I kept wondering ‘what do you exactly mean? Is Freshers a thing? A place? A person?’."
