So far we have accumulated enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that no one on the west coast, east coast, or the Midwest says orgo.
Who are you mysterious orgo people?!?!? Who are you???
attn science side of tumblr we are doing an extremely important study on who actually says orgo
I say orgo and that is what I heard in my undergrad institution in Boston. (But I am a physicist so maybe the chem students said ochem?). Math person in my office who is from Mexico said he has hear ochem or carbonchem. Other physics person in my office has heard both ochem and orgo but she said that ochem is more common where she went to school (Chicago).
carbonchem? now we have to make a whole new addition to the survey this is getting out of hand
new england says orgo
Uni of Illinois says orgo, which wrecked me coming from California.
I say ochem (I took it at Western Washington University) but my girlfriend calls it orgo. She’s from Kentucky.
Said girlfriend from Kentucky (baby, is this a thing now or), and I don’t really remember my picking up saying orgo, haha, but it’s a thing.
Ochem all the way! Although the former lab tech at the local community college liked to abbreviate it “org”. It was strange.
BC, Canada (west coast) and almost everyone here uses o chem.
I’ve only ever heard it called orgo / organic (University of Toronto/McMaster)
Pharmacy Tech in Ohio that worked with several Pharmacy students from the University of Cincinnati — they all called it OChem
Pretty sure everyone at my school in central PA called it orgo. (Although I myself am a classicist who took no chemistry)
