The subject of this entry no longer exists in Davis or is a former version of something that came afterwards.
All information here is for historical reference only.
The word of the day is posted every weekday in the north-south hallway at the west end of Haring Hall near the vending machines. There is even a special plastic "word of the day" holder designed to hold an 8.5"x11" sheet of paper. It is my understanding that one guy (probably a professor in the School of Veterinary Medicine) has been posting the word of the day for years.
Some choice previous words of the day:
ranivorous - adj. frog eating
2007-02-27 13:46:01 No Word of the Day Today
2008-03-22 17:09:34 The word of the day has disappeared! Anybody know what happened to it? I liked it. —MartySmith
UPDATE (10/24/2009): The Word of the Day has been removed for quite some time. No new words have been up for the last year or so.
