Pronounced U-burbanite, from suburbanite.

Students of a large university, or residents of the surrounding area, whose lives (whether or not they like it) are impacted by the U on a daily basis.

Inspired by the University of Minnesota's annoying habit of using the capital letter "U" whenever possible, up to the point of subsituting it for the word "you" whenever possible. This author is sure that other universities have a similar tendancies, but she has not experienced them.
The Uburbanites are up in arms about the new stadium proposal.

The Uburbanites mobbed the University's office, demanding the return of the word "you."

A way-cooler word for chickpeas, and a major ingredient in hummus.

Something that must remain stocked at all times in college cafeteria salad bars. This is on pain of death or violent dismemberment by hoardes of trendy, enraged, pita-and-hummus-consuming college students.
This is your first night working the salad bar? Okay. First thing you need to do is figure out where we keep the garbanzo beans. Check the coolers. Find them. I don't even know what the freaking things are, but God help us if we ever run out of them.

I prefer the term Grammar Mongol, myself. Nazi is a little cliché these days.

An insult regarding the artistic ability of a person's female parent, especially in regards to the cutting-up and re-gluing of pictures from magazines.

Found especially among students of Graphic or Interior Design, as no one else cares (or knows) about the artistic abilities of their mother.

This insult is perhaps a parody of misspelling/mispronunciation of Kip Dynamite's crushing yet witty line your mom goes to college.
Graphic Design Student: You wouldn't know an "Interior" if it were labled--in chartreuse!
Interior Design Student: Oh, yeah? You call *that* "graphic design"? I made better collages than that when I was three!
Graphic Design Student: Your mom goes to collage.
Interior Design Student: *runs away crying*
