A commonly used word at SMU, often used to refer to a situation or person being "Sketch." The word can be used as "sketch," "sketchily," "sketchmiester," also interchangable with shiesty If you see someone being sketch at a party call them on it. Girls if a guy offers to buy you a drink and he's "sketch" watch him like a hawk bc he may slip a rufie in your drink.
Lee is sketchily touchy dani on her ass.
Lee is so sketch that no one wants to be alone with him.
He is SO sketchy that Robyn locks her door at night.
