I say 'cool' but it feels stale, like some character from an outdated movie. Is this what a college student in the States says when out with friends? Somehow I imagine there is a litany of contemporary phrases but the few I have heard seem specific to groups, like 'tubular' for surferers.

How would an American youth say you are in keeping with current standards.
In my time, He is in. That's hip. She is with it.

How would a young person express being in style these days?

TIA
