English term or phrase: fourth-year fifth
At the annual Foxfield horse races, students
start drinking in the morning and go all day. At the historic Lawn, students
get bombed, strip and streak naked. And there’s the “fourth-year fifth,”
when some fourth-year students try to finish a fifth before kickoff at the final
home football game. In 1997, a senior honors student died after drinking
heavily and falling down stairs

agree  Giuseppe Bellone: Credo anch'io l'unica sia lasciare così e spiegare, d'altra parte va spiegato anche in inglese, non tutti sapranno cos'è nemmeno da quelle parti! http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2472&dat=19981115&id=s...
