FWIS

noun; acronym
a required class that Rice Freshmen take during one of their first two semesters to get better at writing
 
We're studying comic books in my FWIS.
Etymology : An acronym for First-Year Writing-Intensive Seminar but pronounced is if "fwis" were a word Initially referred to as F.W.I.S.'s, the acronym got too cumbersome, so students just started to pronounce it like a single word
Source : August 2012 FWIS were first introduced to Rice students at large during adviser training for O-Week.
