quad

verb; zero derivation
to loiter and socialize, specifically in a college quadrangle. Interpretation of intended meaning To hang out in a college quad, generally around the swing. Presumed reason for coinage Hanging out in the quad was a specific enough activity, and distinguishable enough from hanging out in general, that it acquired its own coinage. Notes Verb "to quad" zero-derived from noun quad, itself a clipping of quadrangle.
