Weekly Slang Phrase!

This week’s Slang Phrase is commonly used amongst college students. When you’re in college, you don’t EVER want to miss out on anything, and that’s how the phrase has developed.   Phrase: F.O.M.O Meaning: Fear Of Missing Out – someone doesn’t want to stay in for a night and miss out on something cool or exciting Example: “I have a huge test tomorrow, but I’ll have such FOMO if I don’t go out”     People usually use this phrase very dramatically, in that they won’t actually miss out on much at all.   EC Fredonia offers English for Academic Purposes (EAP).
