B-T-Dub

slang; acronym
‘Back to Wiess’
 
This word contains sound symbolism, particularly in the ‘Dub’ which comes from the sound made when saying the letter: W. It was personalized from the common acronym BTW (by the way), to B-T-Dub to include a cool, hip feeling, and to differentiate from the common meaning of BTW. This phrase is particular to Wiessmen of Wiess College at Rice University. It is also used in informal settings, and only with those who understand what the acronym means.
Etymology : from the common acronym, BTW (by the way), personalizing the ‘W’ to Wiess, a college within Rice University
Source : Me: “Where are you headed?” Bre (friend): “I’m going B-T-Dub!”
