It’s been a while since we posted some of the lingo for you to learn. Please be sure to check out our earlier lists in Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, and Part 6. Here are a few more terms that may help you navigate the college experience.
Every profession, activity, or area of interest has its own jargon or set of specialized vocabulary. College is no different. As a college parent, you may be surprised at how quickly your college student will pick up the appropriate lingo.
If your college student slips into ”college-speak” and you don’t understand what she is talking about — ask! Please remember that there may be some variation in the use of these terms at various institutions.
