When I was in college my fraternity brothers created the word fice. It is a combination of the words fucking and nice.

I am not sure why they came up with it, but we used it all the time. If we had a big party coming up it was fice, going out on a date with a hot or awesome chick, it’s fice. It many ways it was an all-encompassing word.

Fice could sometimes be used in place of using dude. In a fraternity, it could be hard to have a conversation without using the word dude.

The emphasis on dude could be used often through the flow of a conversation. If someone aced a test throughout campus someone might use an elongated pronunciation of the word Duuuuuuude! The emphasis being on well done. We frequently used Fice in place of dude.

If someone aced a test you would use fice. It was a reference as dude was to a job well done.

The frequency with how much we said and used fice shows why we needed it. It frequently would get a laugh even though we did not use the word lightly.

The way we used the world and talked to each other with it somewhat reminds of the bud light men from the 1990s using Whazzup.

That commercial created a lot of buzz. It was very polarizing. Fice was the same for us. Many in the fraternity didn’t like it. It also seemed to annoy many of the girlfriends of the brothers too.

It was a great word for us though. In many ways, it was unifying and created our own code. That often annoys those that are not in the Greek system.

Fice became a part of our everyday vernacular. It brought us closer together. Many of us had come to college a long way from home. We created a family within the fraternity. We all loved

We created a family within the fraternity. We all cared greatly for each other. Fice was how we all felt about each other.
