We like to facilitate online discussions, and engage in debates to find the truth behind the Freshman 15. While we try to keep most of the content on this site light hearted (ex: the freshman 15 song) we try not to offend anyone in any way. If we can educate ourselves by laughing at ourselves, at least we are learning. View and post comments on our freshman fifteen website comments page.

Statement from Chris Phillips

"I am not a nutrition expert, sociologist or journalist. My educational background is a B.S. in Marketing and a Minor in Web Technology. The purpose for creating the site was to build a website that could be the main "hub" of information for those searching for information on the freshman fifteen. In college I observed, talked to a lot of students, and did some research on the freshman 15. I enjoy developing websites, especially free information based websites that help younger people."

Thank you for visiting our site,

Chris Phillips
