slackadem

noun; blending
A student at Rice who is not an engineer, architect, or musician, and hardly has any work to do At Rice, each major school of study has a nickname. An academ is a person who is majoring in the liberal arts, generally someone who is not an engineer. They usually do not take any math or science courses, and stereotypically have easier course loads because they only have to read for their classes (which is completely false, as are most stereotypes). Since the word slack sounds like the first syllable of the word academ, so it fits the two together. It implies that since academs never have labs to go to or problem sets to complete, they do not really have to do any work at all.
 
You only have two finals? You’re such a slackadem
