" When I first came to this school last year, I had no idea what people were talking about when they said the ' UGLi ' . Come on, that ' s kind of a stretch for ' Undergraduate Library " -Joe Ross, LSA sophomore Juring orientation and registration, students were bombarded re- peatedly with strange-sounding words that they were expected to automati- cally understand as University students. " Have you ' CRISPed ' into your classes yet? " " Don ' t forget to check with the ' ITD ' for E-mail or the ' ONSP ' for information. " Perhaps University students, staff, and faculty really were that lazy that abbreviated speech was necessary, or perhaps there was some method to the madness. Not surprisingly, several first-year students disliked the overuse of acronyms. Aaron Mendenhall, a first-year engineering student regarded acronyms as, " pointless.
