    I have a quick question. When did Yearlings start to be called Yuks? I had not heard that term before. Thanks.

    Since my time ('88 grad). The term was around when I was there but was definitely a derogatory one like "Smack". Something a firstie might say jokingly (or condescendingly) to a yearling he didn't care for much. But definitely not something your parents would have ever heard (much less used!) like it is now!

    Thanks so much for the quick reply. I've been out of touch awhile so it definitely is new to me.
