'Frosh' means 'Fresh'

While reading my favorite blog, I was sure I found the wrong spelling in it.

'Frosh' should spell "Fresh".

But I looked up the online dictionary, it has that word: 'frosh' means 'a freshman in a college.' My dictionary doesn't have it. Why not a freshman is 'frosh'? These sound very different. I am not so serious though, just I am wondering why.

It's an American English word. I realize that there's really a lot in the world that I don't know.
