1. If you are referring to the entire class, you'd write/say "the freshman class this year" or "the freshman class of 2019" (meaning they'll graduate in 2019).

If you are referring to a group of individuals, but not the class as a whole, then you'd write/say, "The freshmen are behaving strangely" -- or some such.
