Sophomore

February 12, 2009 purchasemymind3

Ever wonder where the word Sophomore comes from? Freshman, Junior, and Senior terms seem more or less self explanatory. In Canada, they refer to different levels of college students as first year, second year, third year, and fourth year.

I was at a school meeting together discussing the elements of being a Sophomore.

Sophomore is an actually an oxymoron.

In Greek- Sophos mean Wise and Moros mean Fool translating to “Wise Fool”

That makes complete sense to me. You think you’ve learned all the ropes and finally got the hang of things at school. But your still a fool because you’ve got two more years ahead of you and you still have much to learn.
