You are watching: What do you call a yale student


What puzzles me, is why the OP bothered to ask this question, which has actually a definite answer the is straightforward to find. Yalies, or Elis. The rest of the Ivy league -- what in heck space they called? Pennsies? Harvardians? Cantabridgians? I've checked out Cornellians and Princetonians offered a couple of times, and maybe Bruins for Brown and Quakers because that Penn, after ~ the sporting activities teams. I have no idea what students at Harvard, Columbia, or Dartmouth acquire called. "Harvard students" appears to be the many common.

Of course, just because they don't have popular existing nicknames doesn't median that they never ever will. In the heart of innovation, I market the following proposals:

Harvard -- LITOMsPrinceton -- Buffies and also TreysColumbia -- NarcotraficantesBrown -- TwosPenn -- (I guess: v Quakers will certainly do)Cornell -- Freeze-PopsDartmouth -- Drunks

I i think the cheer in ~ Brown games is still, "what's the color of st?" so maybe they can be called "Sh***s."

I live really near Harvard and know a lot of Harvard people and there really isn't a usual nickname. I would certainly think "Johns" can do fine ... Specifically at night.

Bulldogs.

It would make sense.

Ok JHS, i need assist with LITOMs

and "Drunks" made me spray coffee.


JHS October 1, 2009, 6:52pm #11

Legends In Their very own Minds

Yeah, ns should have just remained with "Drunks" (and maybe "Narcotraficantes"). It was my original impetus -- what the heck carry out they contact Dartmouth students? various other than "drunks"? The remainder of the nicknames need work.

JHs - Oh, dear! ns am just covering mine head wait for the fallout........ To be you in YPMB through chance???


wisedad October 1, 2009, 10:41pm #13

Rotfl in ~ this thread! yet what's with JHS's Princeton name?

I'm hoping it's as funny together "legends".


wisedad October 1, 2009, 10:43pm #14

That will teach me to shot reading top top this iphone without magnification! Buffies, of course.

But certain the men are Chips?


JHS October 1, 2009, 10:59pm #15

YPMB -- Nope, don't beat an tool (not that it would have actually mattered for this reason much). The girl I had actually a like on for years dated its drum major for awhile, though. My most far-ranging club affiliation was with the excellent 'Brook flavor team. And also a madrigal group.

Treys -- one of my finest Princeton girlfriend is a III. I number anyone can be a Chip, but it takes real intergenerational teamwork to create a Trey.

I knew a 7th.

Wouldn't Penn people be Pennies - or maybe Coins or pocket Change?


JHS October 2, 2009, 12:16pm #17

"Pennies" isn't bad. Unfortunately, ns think "Quakers" is in reality in typical usage.

I think in olden work Dartmouth supplied "Indians" because that its teams, and possibly because that its students, too. I remember choruses the "DAAARTMOUTH! INDIANS! I-N-D-I-A-N-S! DAAARTMOUTH! INDIANS! SCALP 'EM!" the went the method of the un-PC lengthy ago.

Doesn't anyone describe Yale students and alums as Elis anymore? I average besides sportswriters.

JHS - re:YPMB - wouldn't have actually mattered at every :)

Just a little rhythm and a penchant for irreverence.
