Booze run

compounding
A word that refers to the action of one person going out to get alcohol for a large number of people. Usually happens in college, and in Rice’s case, during O-Week.
 
This is a compound word that has the roots of ‘booze’ and ‘run’. Booze, according to etymonline, is a term for alcoholic drinks that originates from the verb ‘booze’ which means ‘to drink heavily’, which in turn comes from the Middle Dutch term ‘bouse’ or ‘busen’ with the same meaning. Even without this etymology knowledge, the compounding is obvious enough.
Etymology : Compound word formed from the roots ‘booze’ (noun form) and ‘run’
