Gryphon Speak

Posted: Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 14:49

The University of Guelph is a special place. So, we thought there should be special words that Gryphons can use to sum up their experiences at U of G. These will definitely help every #futuregryphon fit right in come September.

Clunger: that hunger you develop when sitting in class and deciding what to get from Creelman for lunch.
“Man, how can I focus when I got a mean clunger going on!”
Guelphie: a selfie taken in Guelph
“Check out this awesome guelphie I took with the Gryphon statue!”
Libing: thr act of studying in the library
“Libing all day today! I got a big exam tomorrow.”
MacFusion: that constant feeling of confusion between all of the buildings that start with "mac" or "mc"
“Whenever I get my new class schedule, there’s a period of total macfusion while I figure out which building is which!”
Procrastigreening: avoiding all responsibilities by choosing to hang out on Johnston Green instead.
“I should have started this essay way earlier, but I was procrastigreening.”
Saiting: the act of standing in a conspicuous fashion and holding a textbook while you wait to see it to another student.
“It’s such a nice day to be saiting by the cannon!”
Studicane: when you room becomes a disaster during midterms and finals.
“Uh, a huge studicane hit my room this week thanks to my physics midterm.”
Wingard Weaving: the act of maneuvering through students on Winegard Walk between classes.
“I want to get my next class early, so I’ll be Winegard weaving for sure!”
