Meat Sheet

noun; compounding
The Newcomer’s Guide of Rice University, which features the pictures of all incoming freshman The “meat sheet” refers to the Newcomer’s Guide given to freshman students at the beginning of the year. The Newcomer’s Guide contains the pictures and interests of all incoming freshman students. It is especially important around Screw Yer Roomate time (the annual blind date event) when it is used by the masses to find a blind date for their roommate. The “meat” of “meat sheet” gives the effect of reducing the freshman in the Newcomer’s Guide to commodities, which is what occurs around Screw Yer Roomate time when people are scouring the guide for a potential date for a roommate. Furthermore, “meat” rhymes with “meet,” which could possibly be a reference to the blind date event, in which people are meeting each other for the first time.
