At the conclusion of the meeting, for no apparant reason or connection, (and almost exactly like Bluto and Flounder in Animal House, and before the movie was released), someone declared of new brother Tim Fleming '90, from now on your fraternity name will be Turk! Surprisingly, this gesture meant for a quick laugh "stuck", and Tim was forevermore, Turk."
