Lingo 101: A guide to College slang

CA : Your Community Advisors are fellow students hired by Residence Life to make sure that things run smoothly on your floor – and to provide an ear when you need to talk about anything that’s bothering you.

The C-Store: The Marketplace Convenience Store is located right outside of Eickhoff Hall. You can use points on your Lion Card to buy frozen dinners, chips and other snacks when you get an attack of the munchies … it’s open ’til 2 a.m.!

The Git: R. Barbara Gitenstein is the College’s current president … and you’ll come to blame her for every problem you have here – especially after you eat in the dining hall!

The Stud: The Brower Student Center is home to the bookstore, a food court and most of Greek life. Steer clear during lunch time!

The Rat: Also located in the Stud, the Rathskellar is our very own on-campus bar and grill that hosts student band nights and other performances.

T-Dubs: For those of you who have just moved into the Towers, you need only descend to the basement to find the Travers/Wolfe Dining Hall. Open for dinner from 6 p.m. to midnight, this is a convenient option after Eickhoff closes.

The Loop: A nickname for Metzger Drive, the road that circles our entire campus. Also the name of the bus that runs Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays to a number of nearby stores and restaurants.

The Beach: If you’re missing the shore, check out this sandy patch and volleyball net right next to the tennis courts.
