Orgo4

verb; zero derivation noun to verb
To work on the subject of Organic Chemistry. More specifically used when the student has the habit of working on Organic Chemistry for hours.
 
Derived from the word "orgo," which is derived from "Organic Chemistry." "Organic Chemistry" is a subject regarding the molecule carbon and the reactions involved with it. "Orgo" is a clipping of "Organic Chemistry" and it still retains the same meaing. However, "to orgo" is a conversion from the noun form of "orgo" to a verb form. "To orgo" means to read or study for the subject of Organic Chemistry. It has become a verb, because students enrolled in the class usually have to spend numerous hours in the subject, so it is okay to coin a new term for studying Organic Chemistry. Also the word was probably coined, because it's an easy way to describe what one is doing, especially since Organic Chemistry students study the subject so much.
Etymology : Clipping of "Organic Chemistry" and then a conversion from noun to verb form.
Source : "Man, we have a test in 4 days. That means that I will have to orgo all day for the next four days. So stressful and overwhelming" (Organic Chemistry classmate).
