Slackademic

noun; compounding
A young person, usually in their mid to late twenties, who prefers to remain in college, potentially on their parent’s payroll, as opposed to getting a job in the real world and becoming self-sustaining. This word is used to describe people such as those portrayed in movies like “Van Wilder” or “Animal House”. They do not seem to want to move on from the perpetual-hangover that is their college lifestyle. If they got a job, their parents would probably expect them to start providing for themselves, so they would rather not.
 
Yeah, Steve really is becoming a slackademic. Isn’t that his ninth year in college?
Etymology : [slackademic. English, compounded from “slack” and “academic”]
